With no Pixar films hitting the big screen this year, fans have been looking forward to upcoming releases like the Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory.
Studio President Jim Morris offered some information about the film to Collider‘s sister site Omelete, revealing that Finding Dory begins six months after the events of the 2003 original. Dory lives in the reef that Marlin and Nemo call home, but feelings of homesickness lead her on a journey to find her parents.
“The movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised,” Morris said. “We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.”
Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane, the sequel will feature returning voice actors Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks, along with newcomers Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.
Finding Dory is scheduled to swim into theaters on June 17, 2016.
