Finding Dory Has More Quirky New Characters: Meet the Additions
Disney/Pixar has released its first look at the full cast of Finding Dory (the highly anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo) and the new crop of aquatic animals have already swum into our hearts.
Set six months after the end of the first film, Finding Dory finds the forgetful blue tang (voiced again by Ellen DeGeneres) on a mission to find her long-lost parents. Pixar has already introduced two of the characters the cheery fish meets along the way—a beluga whale named Bailey voiced by Modern Family's Ty Burrell, and Destiny, a whale shark voiced by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia actress Kaitlin Olson—but nothing could prepare us for what was to come. Scroll down to meet the rest of the additions to Dory's motley crew.
The first new "face" in Dory's ocean is Hank, a grumpy orange octopus voiced by Ed O'Neill. Hank (who's missing a tentacle) is only after one thing: a ticket on a transport truck to a cozy Cleveland facility where he'll be able to enjoy a peaceful life of solitude. Aren't we all?
Next up is an impossibly adorable foursome of baby otters. We don't know much about them, but who cares? Just look at them!
Meanwhile, Dory's long-lost parents, Charlie (voiced by Eugene Levy) and Jenny (voiced by Diane Keaton) look just like their forgetful daughter.
Two familiar voices are behind the next duo. In a departure from their The Wire characters, Dominic West and Idris Elba provide the vocals for Rudder and Fluke, a pair of lazy sea lions.
And then there's Becky, a kooky little loon.
Finding Dory swims into theaters June 17.
