Just a few days after getting a whole new, Peter Gabriel-soundtracked trailer for Finding Dory, the anticipated sequel to Pixar’s Finding Nemo, we now have our first full clip from the animated film. The scenario might seem a bit familiar to you, with Albert Brooks‘ worry-wort fish Marlin catching a ride to California via the current with Crush the Turtle. As you may remember, Crush is voiced by the film’s director, Andrew Stanton, to sounds similar to a stoned California surfer catching a gnarly wave. Of the many scenes you could return to, this is one of the more forgivable, but I’m really hoping that this isn’t a sign of a total retread in the sequel, and that Stanton infuses some originality into his latest work. We’ll find out for sure on June 17th, when the film arrives in theaters nationwide.
Here’s the clip:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks). When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium.
In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark.
Deftly navigating the complex innerworkings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.
Directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL•E), co-directed by Angus MacLane (Toy Story OF TERROR!), and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer WALL•E), Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory swims into theaters June 17, 2016.
