Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale? Directed by Andrew Stanton and produced by Lindsey Collins, the film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. “Finding Dory” swims into theaters June 17, 2016.

FAMILY TIES – Dory has found a home with Marlin and Nemo, who welcomed her into their family with open fins. Filmmakers studied the psychology of adoption to better understand how Dory might feel to be a part of an extraordinary adopted family, yet still wonder about her past.

• Even though Dory was already designed for “Finding Nemo,” filmmakers had to bring her design into current technology to use it. To achieve the specific shapes and expressions that fans would recognize as Dory, artists put images from the first movie side by side with images in production to ensure all was as it should be.
ALL GROWN UP – Alexander Gould, who originally voiced Nemo in 2003’s “Finding Nemo” will be 22 in May, so filmmakers had to recast the character, calling on 12-year-old Hayden Rolence to voice the junior clownfish in “Finding Dory.”

• Gould, who won filmmakers’ hearts 13 years ago, can be heard in the new movie as the voice of a truck driver.

• Rolence, who was cast long before recording began, was advised that he couldn’t tell anyone about the role. That proved tough for the youngster, who wanted more than anything to share the  news with his grandma.
LAUGHABLE – Comedian Albert Brooks returns to the big screen as the voice of clownfish Marlin in “Finding Dory.” Filmmakers say Brooks is all about improv, infusing his iconic comedy into the character. While Marlin carried a big emotional load in “Finding Nemo,” he’s been freed up in “Finding Dory,” allowing Brooks a lot more improvisational leeway this time.
LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN – When designers were working on Hank, the cantankerous octopus in “Finding Dory,” they created tapered tentacles for the cephalopod. The tentacles were modeled separately from the body, but when they tried to attach them, only seven would fit. Filmmakers later decided that it made sense that Hank would have an affliction, sothey worked it into the script.

• Designers gave Hank 50 suckers per arm for a total of 350 suckers.
REUNITED – When filmmakers cast the voices of the lounging sea lions Fluke and Rudder, they decided to bring two actors from “The Wire” together again, tapping Idris Elba and Dominic West.
VISIONARY – Destiny is a whale shark who is being cared for at the Marine Life Institute, but filmmakers weren’t initially sure what ailed her. It was Bailey, Destiny’s beluga whale neighbor, who opened their eyes—so to speak. Belugas are known for their echolocation skills—a biological sonar of sorts—that is described at the MLI as “The World’s Most Powerful Pair of Eye Glasses.” Filmmakers decided that if Bailey had an enhanced sense of sight, perhaps Destiny’s was compromised. A nearsighted whale shark was born.

• Destiny actually taught Dory to speak whale. Of course, the fact that Destiny is a whale shark—not a whale—explains Dory’s limited understanding of the language.

ALL IN THE FAMILY – Becky, an offbeat, kooky loon who takes a liking to Marlin, is named after production manger Becky Neiman-Cobb, who insists there’s no resemblance.
