Finding Dory: First Look At New Characters

Since Pixar announced a sequel to 2003 underwater adventure Finding Nemo, I am so excited for this film and cannot wait to hear more about it! Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we are introduced to two new characters from the film; beluga whale Bailey (Ty Burrell) and whale shark Destiny (Kaitlin Olson). Check out the adorable picture below!

Finding Dory picks up events six months after the first film ends with Dory on an adventure to find her long-last parents. She bumps into Bailey and Destiny along the way at a rehabilitation center at a marine life facility.

The voices of the two new characters have been talking about the film. “My character isn’t great at his own sonar capability, and Destiny has trouble swimming straight,” Burrell explains. Together, the offbeat duo — seen in the above concept art for the first time — play an important role in reuniting Dory with her loved ones. (But only if they can manage to get along first.)

There’s always a deeper message with Pixar, and so much of it [in Finding Dory] is that these characters are trying to find faith in themselves,” says Burrell. “They’re trying to overcome their insecurities in order to help somebody in need.”

Finding Dory stars Ellen DeGeneres, Ty Burrell, Kaitlin Olson, Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Willem Dafoe, Dominic West, Ed O’Neill, Eugene Levy and Idris Elba. The film is set to land in cinemas June 17, 2016.
