Ellen DeGeneres unveiled a new trailer for Finding Dory on her show this morning, and it’s the most substantive look yet at Disney and Pixar’s long-awaited aquatic sequel.
The follow-up to 2003’s beloved Finding Nemo revolves around Dory’s (DeGeneres) quest to find her parents in California, and she’s helped along the way by old friends like Nemo and his father, Marlin. It seems like Finding Nemo‘s plot has just been grafted onto a new movie and a slightly tweaked cast of characters, but Finding Nemo was delightful. I understand the impulse to avoid tinkering with a formula that worked so well the first time around, and there’s a whole new generation of kids ready to dive into this world for the first time alongside Dory.
You’ll have to wait a few more months before returning to the sea: Finding Dory is being released on June 17th. Till then enjoy the trailer.
