Over a decade since little Nemo got lost in the big, blue ocean in 2003's hit Pixar film Finding Nemo and, we're now finally set to make a return back under the water to this world, with its follow-up Finding Dory. And, this evening, a teaser trailer and poster have swum in.
Joining the iconic clownfish Marlin on the search for his son last time around was the forgetful little fan-favourite blue tang Dory. Her outgoing personality and charisma clearly won the fans over because the long-awaited sequel will put the spotlight on her, and dedicate its premise to her as she goes on a search for her family and to try and find out about her past - set just a few months after the events of its predecessor, despite arriving 13 years after it released.
This evening, Pixar have debuted a short teaser trailer for the film and it looks delightful. From the brief glimpse at the sequel we get, it seems as though everything that made the character of Dory so lovable and fun has been retained which is a good sign. The reveal is light on details but does a good job of reintroducing our characters and establishing the jovial tone of the film. Accompanying the reveal, the first poster for Finding Dory has also been unveiled and the tagline - "She just kept swimming" - echoes the eponymous protagonist's renowned line of "Just keep swimming".
Here's the film's official synopsis:
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?
With Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane returning to the helm, and starring the voice talents of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Idris Elba, Diane Keaton, Ed O'Neill and Ty Burren, Finding Dory is set to swim into cinemas on June 17th, 2016.
