With director Andrew Stanton’s Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory, arriving in theaters this weekend, a few days ago I got to sit down with Ellen Degeneres and Ed O’Neill. During my exclusive video interview, they talked about memorable moments from the recording process, if Ellen was nervous she might have been replaced by someone from Modern Family, and more.
As most of you know, the sequel finds Dory (DeGeneres) setting out on an adventure to discover answers about her past. Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (newcomer Hayden Rolence) are back along with Bob Peterson as Mr. Ray and Stanton himself as Crush the super-chill sea turtle. New additions include Dory’s fish parents, Charlie and Jenny (voiced by Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton); a beluga whale named Bailey (Ty Burrell); a whale shark called Destiny (Kaitlin Olson); and the curmudgeonly octopus, Hank (Ed O’Neill).
