A new Finding Dory Trailer Hints Pixar’s Latest was Worth the Wait

Rejoice, Pixar fans—the new trailer for Finding Dory is here. As you're well aware, Dory returns many of the stars from Finding Nemoincluding leads Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks. The action picks up just six months after the first movie (13 years in actual human time, of course), with Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) living a quiet life among her clown fish friends. Only when Dory joins Nemo on a class trip to see a manta ray migration, her home sickness leads her on a quest to find out where she came from. The problem for Dory, of course, is she's a wee bit forgetful.

The new trailer has a bunch of great new footage, including a comic bit with a couple of lounging sea lions at the end that's pure Pixar magic; beautifully realized CGI married to pitch perfect humor. With the thrust of the story revolving around fan favorite Dory trying to find her family, coupled with Pixar's meticulous world creation and narrative care, the new Finding Dory trailer hints that all the hallmarks of a Pixar classic are here. 

Pixar president Jim Morris has previously revealed that Finding Dory will be set mostly at the California Marine Biology Institute (which we get a whole lot more footage of in the trailer), which he's said is a "huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised. We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.”

Findng Nemo director Andrew Stanton is back, and along with DeGeneres and Brooks, you've got talent including Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Michael Sheen, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. 

Walt Disney Pictures will release the animated sequel on June 17. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
