‘Finding Dory’ Plot — New Details Revealed
At the Comic Con Experience in Brazil, the president of Disney Pixar Studios, Jim Morris, announced some exciting news about the film.
He showed off art and unfinished scenes — we totally wish we could have been there to witness that! He even presented a new software that Pixar developed to create crowds (schools of fish).
As for the plot of the movie, Jim announced that it will follow Dory, Merlin and Nemo as they set off on a journey to find about Dory’s past and parents. The movie will mainly take place in the Marine Biology Institute of California, a huge complex of rehabilitation for marine life.

Ellen Degeneres In ‘Finding Dory’
Ellen Degerneres, the voice of Dory, proudly announced the sequel in April of 2013. She had this to say about the exciting news:
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” Ellen said in the statement. “I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating Toy Story 16. But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It’s got a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is—it’s got a lot more Dory.”
The film is now scheduled to release on June 17, 2016. HollywoodLifers, do you like movie’s plot? Are you excited for ‘Finding Dory’ to finally come out? Let us know!
