While in their early years, the perception might’ve been that Pixar treated their titles with a certain degree of sacredness, that’s now gone out of the window. Such is the landscape that we’ve already had a “Monsters Inc.” sequel, and a fourth “Toy Story” is on the way. But next, will be a follow up to the delightful “Finding Nemo,” which one can only hope will feel more necessary and a piece of its predecessor, than “Monsters University” did.
Andrew Stanton is back to the world of animation after infamously flopping hard with “John Carter,” and the story this time around seems pretty familiar. “Dory is searching for her parents — she realizes [she] has parents — and comes across some characters who are somewhat helpful,” Ellen DeGeneres told Yahoo! this summer. Joining the actress and talk show host for a swim in these waters this time around are Kaitlin Olson, Ed O’Neil, Albert Brooks, Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, and Idris Elba.
“Finding Dory” opens on June 17, 2016. Watch below.
