'Finding Dory' Trailer: Journey Back Under the Sea

Back in 2003, between Monsters, Inc. and The Incredibles, Pixar added another timeless film to its never-ending batch of 'em. It was Finding Nemo, directed by Andrew Stanton, who would go on to helm WALL-E and co-write Toy Story 3.

In June 2016, the magical movie will get a sequel, Finding Dory. Today we've got the first trailer, and we suddenly realize how bad we missed this memory-deficient, sleep-swimming Pacific regal blue tang and her clownfish pals.

From the little we can glean here, it looks like Dory's brain cells are starting to perk up a bit, leading her on a family-seeking quest that may jibe with the original. Ellen DeGeneres is returning as Dory, as will Albert Brooks as Marlin and Willem Dafoe as Gill. New voice actors include Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba and Modern Family stars Ty Burrell and Ed O'Neill. If those surfer-dude sea turtles don't return, we're flipping some tables.

2015 is the first year Pixar's done two films, with November's The Good Dinosaur following June's Inside Out. Also on the horizon are Cars 3, Toy Story 4, The Incredibles 2 and a non-sequel called Coco.
