Pixar can be hit or miss with their sequels. On one hand the Toy Story sequels seemed to get better with each installment, and on the other hand, Monster’s University didn’t do much for Monster’s Inc. and Cars 2 well… we don’t have to talk about Cars 2. This year though, they’re preparing to tackle one of their riskiest sequels yet with Finding Dory.
Picking up after the events of the beloved original film, Finding Dory follows Ellen Degeneres’ beloved, forgetful royal blue tang fish as she embarks on a journey across the ocean to find the family she had forgotten. Along the way, she’ll meet just as many unforgettable, unique characters that Marlin and Nemo met on theirs.
A new poster for the film has been released online earlier today as well, and it continues to poke fun at its titular character’s problems with short term memory. Check it out below:
Included in the poster are some of the memorable returning faces including the original film’s lead trio, as well as some familiar sea turtles and sting rays. Other noticeable inclusions are some of Dory‘s most unique new additions to the franchise, including Ed O’Neill’s grouchy septopus Hank, Kaitlin Olson’s lovable whale shark Destiny, Ty Burrell’s beluga whale Bailey, and more.
If I’m being honest, I probably wouldn’t have much faith in Finding Dory if it weren’t for the return of director Andrew Stanton at the helm and a number of the original creative team coming back for the follow-up film. All in all though, the posters themselves are fun, and the trailers for the film have been promising. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if Pixar can continue their newfound momentum following Inside Out last year.
Finding Dory will hit theatres on June 19th.
