“Finding Dory” takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
Disney Pixar's John Lasseter arrived at the Cannes Film Festival today for a two-hour presentation that offered new details on the studio's slate of upcoming animated movies. The filmmaker presented The Good Dinosaur, Finding Dory, Toy Story 4, Zootopia and Moana to the Cannes crowd, all of which will be released between 2015 and 2017. John Lasseter presented clips from all of the aforementioned projects, except for Toy Story 4, and while those videos haven't been made available yet, the filmmaker did offer plenty of new details about each project.
Finding Dory (June 17, 2016) is set just six months after the events of 2003's Finding Nemo, where Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), Nemo and Marlin (Albert Brooks) reunite and go on a journey to find the forgetful Dory's parents (Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy). The sequel will include adventures such as a jaunt through the Pacific Ocean where shipping containers have fallen off several boats, encounters with deadly squid and the introduction of two new friends, an octopus and a "whale-shark" named Destiny, who thinks she's a whale but is actually a shark.Read More
While Pixar has a full upcoming slate that includes next summer's Inside Out followed by The Good Dinosaur in November, along with the much anticipated debut of Toy Story 4 in 2017, one of their most anticipated projects is a sequel to the 2003 classic Finding Nemo. Omlete recently caught up with Pixar President Jim Morris, who spoke about the 2016 release. He offered the first new information we've heard about this follow-up in quite sometime, revealing the story and the setting.
While Finding Dory originally had a different story set in place, Pixar changed direction after the studio screened Blackfish, which follows the plight of a killer whale held in captivity at SeaWorld. The movie was originally set at an aquatic park, but the filmmakers hope that this change to a Biology Institute will set them on 'the right side of history'.Read More
