A new trailer for Disney-Pixar’s Finding Dory was bound to drop sooner or later, and who better to release the trailer than Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of Dory, the lovable and absented-minded blue fish. The film is the follow-up to 2003’s Finding Nemo, which also won an Academy Award. The new trailer is scheduled to make its debut on Wednesday, March 2.
The first trailer for Finding Dory, Pixar’s follow-up to their 2003 animated hit Finding Nemo, has been released online.
The trailer is of the teaser variety, setting up the sequel’s story. The movie centers around the first film’s forgetful fan favorite, Dory (once again voiced by Ellen Degeneres), as a fragment of her memory involving her family returns to her, leading her to set off on a mission to find them.
You can check out the first trailer for Finding Dory below, along with a poster for the movie.
After a short-lived stint with live-action films, Andrew Stanton returns home to direct Finding Dory, a sequel to the fan favorite Finding Nemo. Angus MacLane (Toy Story of Terror) joins him as co-director. Rather than just have another story about a missing fish, the follow-up changes a few things up by making Dory go missing after realizing that she got separated from her family after being hit with short-term memory loss. Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks will reprise their voice roles as Dory and Marlin respectively, with Hayden Rolence replacing Alexander Gould as Nemo.
During the Walt Disney Animation Studios presentation at the D23 Expo on Friday, we learned that Finding Dory will be adding Ty Burrell (Modern Family) as Bailey, a beluga white whale, Ed O’Neill (Modern Family) an octopus with a missing arm, and Kaitlin Olson (Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as a whale shark. More here below on their characters plus a description of the footage that was shown at the panel.
FX, the network behind hit shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rescue Me, and Sons of Anarchy, has picked up a brand new animated comedy series called Unsupervised.
The series comes from It’s Always Sunny creators (and stars) Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Glenn Howerton‘s RCG Productions banner. It’s part of a recent three–year, $50 million deal between the company and FX. The show is created and executive produced by Rob Rosell, Scott Marder, and David Hornsby, who have also worked on It’s Always Sunny.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 5, EP 1-4
Starring Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, Danny De Vito
On the eve of the fifth season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I am sitting here wondering how this show can still be on the air. I am not talking about the blatant irreverence. The question comes more from the curiosity behind how a show like this can survive as long as it has without becoming monotonous and boring. At its heart it is the very definition of a one-trick pony.
If you tried to tell someone who hasn’t seen the show what it was about, it wouldn’t sound like much. It’s a group of underachievers who run a dive bar in south Philly who try to scheme their way into their vision of success. What they are trying to succeed at differs with each episode but it usually comes from a part of their brain that is poorly lit and with little thought of consequence. The truth is they are unsuccessful at just about everything they are involved in, business, relationships, sobriety; pretty much life in general. The only people that seem oblivious to their limitations are each other. You can gussy it up all you want, but at its core that is pretty much what you have. They don’t tell jokes, they don’t have extravagant thematic elements or running storylines, it just is what it is. We are four years into the sport of watching these characters flail around their little fishbowl and there is only one reason anyone in their right mind would still watch it — it’s still funny.
