Last year, we reported that Pixar’s Finding Dory would be about the forgetful fish (Ellen DeGeneres) trying to find her parents with the help of Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo. We also learned that her story would take the trio from the Great Barrier Reef to along the California coastline. Granted, the film is still far off and a lot can change when it comes to an animated movie, but it’s not a premise, especially if you have Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy voicing Dory’s parents. There was also word that the movie would take place at an aquatic park, and that the ending was tweaked in response to the outcry from the heart-wrenching documentary Blackfish, which is about the abuse of orcas at Sea World.
Now a recent interview with Pixar President Jim Morris has provided new details regarding one of the film’s major settings and how it affects the plot. Hit the jump for more. Finding Dory opens June 17, 2016.
