While wandering through the The Magic of Disney Animation building at Disney’s Hollywood Studios I noticed that there was a new poster for Pixar’s “Finding Dory.” I’m a bit surprised by how dark & murky the feel is. But I am happy to see that the movie is finally getting some attention.
“Finding Dory” is currently the only Pixar film scheduled to be released in Summer 2016. “Inside Out” and “The Good Dinosaur” are both coming from Pixar in 2015. So it’s going to be a good 18 months for Pixar fans. It’s a sequel to the 2003 Pixar film “Finding Nem”o and, as the title suggests, will focus on the character of Dory, the one with amnesiac tendencies.
It’s been theorized that the plot will focus on Dory finding her family, but based on this poster, I think there might be some darker material too. Rumors include that a trip to a marine animal park to visit an Orca was redone after the controversial film “Blackfish” was reviewed by the film’s producers.
Ellen DeGeneres has been confirmed to return to the original role and it’s believed most of the original cast, including the “Tank Gang,” will be back. New cast includes Diane Keaton as Dory’s mother Jenny, Ty Burrell as Bailey, a beluga whale, and Kaitlin Olsen as an Orca who Dory considers an adopted sister.
