The official synopsis for Finding Dory has recently been updated and includes a few additional details regarding the film’s characters. Most notably we learn that Dory’s friend from the past, Destiny, is nearsighted (which may explain why she says she doesn’t swim well in the recently released trailer). Read the official synopsis below and chat about the details in the Forum.
Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks). When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center, and aquarium.
In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents:
- Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip
- Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz
- Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark.
Deftly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships, and family.
Directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL•E), co-directed by Angus MacLane (Toy Story OF TERROR!), and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer WALL•E), Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory swims into theaters June 17, 2016.
