Finding Dory packs the same impressive visuals as its predecessor, but can its story match up?
Thirteen years after Pixar hit it big with Finding Nemo, the studio will be attempting to catch lightning in a bottle once again with Finding Dory.
Ellen Degeneres returns to the scene-stealing role of Dory, the dim-witted sidekick of Nemo from the first film. This time around, she’ll be accompanied by Nemo and Marlin as she travels across seas far and wide in search of her family.
In addition to marking the return of Ellen Degeneres, Finding Dory will also star It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olsen alongside Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. Speaking to the underlying message that Dory will hope to achieve, Burrell recently stated that “There’s always a deeper message with Pixar.”
“And so much of it in Finding Dory is that these characters are trying to find faith in themselves…They’re trying to overcome their insecurities in order to help somebody in need.”
Finding Dory hits theaters on June 17th, so check out the official synopsis below.
