Set six months after Finding Nemo, Dory visits a marine rehabilitation center where she meets a beluga whale named Bailey (Burrell) and a whale shark named Destiny (Olson).

“My character isn’t great at his own sonar capability, and Destiny has trouble swimming straight,” Burrell told EW.

“We totally get on each other’s nerves,” Olson revealed to EW. “I like to think I’m a shark, but Bailey calls me a whale, and I make fun of his head, because it’s gigantic.”

“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.” 

Official Synopsis:

Finding Dory reunites the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the true meaning of family along the way. 

Directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL•E), co-director Angus MacLane and producer Lindsey Collins (WALL•E)

Featuring the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, as Dory, Albert Brooks as Marlin, Diane Keaton as Dory’s mom Jenny, Eugene Levy as Dory’s dad Charlie and Ty Burrell as Bailey.

‘Finding Dory’ swims into theaters June 17, 2016.
