Finding Dory logo

The Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory hits theaters in just a handful of months and we haven’t seen much. Because Pixar Animation Studios operates almost completely off the grid in Emeryville, we often don’t find out about some of the voice cast until the month or so before release.

But every once in a while an actor slips up and reveals themselves as part of a new Pixar animated feature. This time the actor is Golden Globe-nominated actor Michael Sheen (Kingdom of Heaven, The Queen, Masters of Sex). Hit the jump for more on the Michael Sheen Finding Dory casting.

Finding Dory Trailer

A lot’s changed for most of us in the past 13 years, but Dory, it seems, is right where we left her. That’s partly because only a few months have changed in her world — but it’s also because she’s still the blue tang so forgetful that in the latest Finding Dory teaser, has trouble remembering she’s the Dory of the title. Instead, she suggests an alternate interpretation of the title. Watch the new Finding Dory teaser after the jump. Read More »

Pixar’s Finding Dory will feature several returning voices from Finding Nemo, including Albert Brooks, Willem Dafoe, and, of course, Ellen Degeneres. However, the upcoming sequel is also filled with new characters voiced by an ensemble of talented actors and actresses, including Idris Elba, Dominic West, Diane Keaton, Ed O’Neil, and Eugene Levy.

But we’re not talking about them right now. A new piece of concept art from the upcoming sequel has revealed Bailey and Destiny, a beluga whale and whale shark voiced by Modern Family‘s Ty Burell and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson. Check out this first look, as well as some additional details, below.

Finding Dory D23

Andrew Stanton‘s Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory was heavily teased on the D23 Expo show floor, and at Friday’s big animation presentation Stanton revealed some of the thinking behind the film, and offered some new footage to the crowd. Basically, his core questions were about Dory and her family. Could she find her way home if she was lost again? Who makes up her family?

In addition to talking up some of those ideas, the presentation revealed a new character: an octopus, voiced by Ed O’Neill. See an image of that newcomer and learn more below.
