The search is on as we get our first look at the poster for Finding Dory. Will a trailer be far behind?
Can you believe it’s been 13 years since Finding Nemo came out? Animated sequels are often years apart but this one has definitely been a long time coming. The latest Disney Expo gave us some fleeting glances of Finding Dory, along with dozens of other upcoming projects. But come on, that’s hardly enough. We’re all cartoon-loving children at heart. We need more, more TV spots, more trailers, more interviews, more Dory! Well I can’t give you all that but how about a poster to tide you over? Not good enough? Well tough, you’re getting a poster.
The news from Slashfilm is that, in advance of a trailer, a poster has washed ashore for the fishy sequel. As Disney promotions go, it’s a pretty minimalist one. Check it out below:
Let’s be honest, how much more do we need to see? The image is gorgeously reminiscent of the first movie and it’s bright blue oceanic expanses. We wouldn’t expect too much to be different visually from the original. Especially since the Finding Dory takes place six months afterwards. The story is that the famously forgetful Dory finds herself remembering something she can’t quite put her finger – sorry, fin – on. Actually, sorry for that pun in general. Her memories take her all the way to the Monterey Marine Life Institute in search of her long lost parents.
The tagline “She just kept swimming” will be a hit with Nemo fans, being a callback to Dory’s mantra throughout the original lost and found fish-tale – sorry, fish tail! Sorry again.
With Andrew Stanton returning to direct, we’re also seeing the return of Ellen DeGeneres as Dory and Albert Brooks as Marlin. As for new blood, we’ve got Modern Family‘s Ed O’Neill and Ty Burrell, Kaitlin Olsen, and Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy playing Dory’s parents.
Finding Dory will hit theatres on June 17th 2016. Wtach this space for all the latest Finding Dory movie news.
