The Finding Dory trailer has been released, and Twitter is going crazy with Finding Dory news. As seen below, the exclusive Finding Dory trailer was published to the YouTube account of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, November 10 at approximately 9:30 a.m. ET. Within one hour, the Finding Dory trailer video had generated more than 96,000 views.
“Everyone’s favorite forgetful fish is back! Check out this exclusive first look at the much-anticipated film.”
Instead of displaying an epic adventure that involves finding Nemo, Finding Dory shows that this time it’s forgetful Dory’s time to be found. Ellen DeGeneres reprises her role as Dory, the blue tang fish, reports Us Weekly. The trailer for Finding Dory follows Monday’s revelation of the movie’s poster.
As the Finding Dory trailer begins, Dory is snoring loudly amongst the sea life. She’s talking to her mother in her dreams, telling her not to cry. Nemo awakens to check on Dory, telling his dad that Dory is sleep swimming.
“Don’t cry, Mommy. Don’t cry.”
Nemo’s dad isn’t having any of the middle-of-the-night interruptions, however, and tries to get Dory and Nemo to go back to sleep.
“Dory! It’s the middle of the night.”
Nemo’s dad reminds him that Dory says all kinds of crazy things in her sleep. That’s when Dory says a funny line about a “ratchet wrench” and using it to fix something.
“Hand me the ratchet wrench. I can fix it.”
Nemo, meanwhile, is worried about Dory swimming off again and needing to be found. Obviously, from the Finding Dory trailer, this isn’t the first time the father and son have had to find Dory.
Dory’s “sleep swimming” adventure begins — she’s sleep swimming and swims away in the blink of an eye, apparently off to find her family. The always forgetful Dory has had a memory that she wants to explore.
“I remembered something! That’s not possible. Is it? Is it like a picture in your head? I’m sure this is a one-time thing.”
The humorous writing found in Finding Nemo returns with Finding Dory, as Dory darts off beyond the sea in order to further investigate the memory she has had. Dory wants to know what a memory actually feels like — and the fact that she uses the word “remember” and “memory” is what sets Dory off to find her family. But her memory isn’t yet 100 percent, because Finding Dory displays Dory’s spotty memory as she once again asks what she was talking about seconds before.
“I remembered something. What was I talking about? My family. They’re out there somewhere. I have to find them. I remembered something important. Something about a clam or — no, an oyster. Mollusk?”
The Finding Dory movie is set to be released on June 17, 2016, about 13 years after Finding Nemo was released in 2003. However, don’t expect Nemo to be a teenager in Finding Dory. The Finding Dory movie is only set six months later than Finding Nemo, so beloved little Nemo is still close in age to the young kindergartener audiences met and fell in love with in Finding Nemo. Finding Dory, as reported by Variety, will take place mainly where Dory was born: the Marine Biology Institute of California.
Finding Dory is brought to audiences by Disney/Pixar, and although Ellen has been talking about Finding Dory for years, fans have finally gotten to enjoy the trailer. Finding Dory also stars Ed O’Neill and Ty Burrell.
