Disney-Pixar has released the first look into their new underwater world of the much anticipated, Finding Dory with Ellen DeGeneres at the helm as the main fish.


With DeGeneres finally getting her wish, audiences can expect the sequel to the 2003, Finding Nemo hit on June 17 and this time all the attention is on Dory.

Forgetful Dory is now on her own adventure to find her family with the help of returning underwater heroes like Marlin (voiced again by Albert Brooks) and Crush (voiced by returning director Andrew Stanton.) New characters are also introduced like Dory’s long lost whale shark friend, Destiny voiced by Kaitlin Olson.

“Destiny is somebody from Dory’s past that she didn’t know about,” Stanton told Yahoo Movies. “She resides at a conservation park called the Marine Life Institute. There’s quite a cast of new characters and new species in this film. And Destiny is one of a few that we’ll come across who help Dory on her journey to figure out her past and find her parents.”

The director also added: “I never thought there was going to be a sequel until one day I went, ‘You know, I worry Dory could get lost again and not find the family she has. And I wondered, ‘Where did she come from?'”

The movie also features a star-studded cast with Idris Elba, Diane Keaton, Ed O’Neill Ty Burrell, Michael Sheen and Dominic West.

Finding Dory hits theaters on June 17.
