“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.
Finding Dory reunites the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the true meaning of family along the way. The all-new big-screen adventure dives into theaters in 2016, taking moviegoers back to the extraordinary underwater world from the original film. The story takes place six months after the events of Finding Nemo, with Dory living what appears to be a nice, quiet life swimming amongst the other clown fish. But after setting off with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, she becomes a bit homesick herself. This leads the forgetful blue tang on a quest to discover where she truly comes from.
The animated movie sequel was originally set at an aquarium theme park, but the studio changed its mind after watching the documentary Blackfish, which showcased the dangers of keeping whales in captivity. The story now takes place at the California Marine Biology Institute, where Dory was born and raised. New characters such as an octopus, sea lions and a beluga whale will be featured in Finding Dory.Read More
