Ellen DeGeneres unveiled the brand new, full-length trailer for Finding Dory on Wednesday, and it is everything. The newest trailer for the highly anticipated Disney and Pixar release is just over a minute and a half long. This is the most comprehensive look at Finding Dory that fans have seen yet. The sequel to the 2003 animated hit Finding Nemo follows Dory (voiced by DeGeneres) as she ventures back out into the ocean to find her parents. Finding Dory is sure to thrill a whole new generation of cartoon lovers, but will it become a classic like the original?
The first trailer for Finding Dory was released back in November 2015, and since then, Disney fans have been clamoring to see more. After a whole lot of hype, Ellen DeGeneres unveiled the newest trailer for the upcoming animated film, and Forbes even predicted that Finding Dory just might be the blockbuster hit of the summer.

In the newest trailer, it is revealed that Dory misses her parents and sets out on a mission to find them along with her friend Marlin, an adventurous stingray. The cast of Finding Dory also includes Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy, and Diane Keaton.
Although the Finding Dory trailer is already available via YouTube, it will officially premiere later in the day when The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs. In it, fans get to see just over a minute and 30 seconds of footage for what might be an immediate classic animated film. The trailer gives an idea of the storyline for Finding Dory and even gives viewers a few good laughs. It also proves that the buzz surrounding the film is well-deserved. This is the sequel to one of Disney and Pixar’s most beloved and successful films in recent years and follows the adventures of fan-favorite Dory, a cute little Pacific Blue Tang with a very short memory.

The Finding Dory trailer opens up with stingray encounter and an undercurrent that reminds Dory of her family. That is when the memory-challenged blue fish decides to head out into the ocean for answers.
“I miss them,” Dory tells Marlin in the trailer. “Do you know what that feels like?”
Just like that, the story of Dory begins.
“There are a lot of big animated films that are important to people, but [Finding Dory] seemed to really, at least for me and a lot of people that I know, break new ground,” Ty Burrell told EW. “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… They’re trying to overcome their insecurities in order to help somebody in need.”
Burrell plays a whale in the upcoming animated film and was not in the original. That said, he is no stranger to animated films and played the voice of Mr. Peabody in Mr. Peabody and Sherman.

Much like Finding Nemo, the sequel Finding Dory won’t stay underwater for the entire film. Instead, E! Online revealed that much of the animated film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California. Finding Dory may get a release date 13 years after the incredibly successful original Finding Nemo, but the story takes place just six months later.
Finding Dory opens in theaters on June 17.
