‘Finding Dory’: Watch new footage from Pixar sequel in international trailer

'Finding Nemo' sequel swims into cinemas this July

Disney and Pixar have released a new international trailer for Finding Dory, the eagerly anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo.

The trailer is for the film’s Japan release so its voices have been dubbed in Japanese, but it features a wealth of previously unseen footage. Scroll down to watch.

For the English-language release of Finding Dory, Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks reprise their roles as Dory and Marlin, while Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy lend their voices to Dory’s parents, Jenny and Charlie. The fim’s starry voice cast also includes Idris Elba, Dominic West, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill and Willem Dafoe.

The sequel’s plot follows Dory as she discovers that she was born and raised at a marine life institute before being released on to the ocean. When she visits the institute on a school trip, her memory is jogged and she and Nemo set off on a journey to find her family.

Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton is also steering the sequel, and wrote its script too. Finding Dory is set for release on July 29 this year (2016).

Released in May 2003, Finding Nemo grossed more than $878million (£562million) at the box office worldwide and won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Plans for a sequel first emerged in 2012.
