The sequel to the beloved animated movie about a little clown fish (with a lucky fin) finally gets a sneak peek.
Disney/ Pixar?s ?Finding Dory? comes 13 years after the release of ?Finding Nemo? and if you grew up watching the film over and over again, you have every reason to feel excited about the sequel featuring our favorite forgetful blue fish.
Ellen DeGeneres, who voices the character of Dory, tweeted a teaser poster for the film.

The story is set six months after the original film, when Dory is inspired by the migratory practices of manta rays.
?The movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised. We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others,? said Pixar president Jim Morris in a statement.
More details were unveiled about the film last October 1 at Disney Pixar media event in Singapore.
Albert Brooks and Willem Dafoe reprise their roles as Marlin and Gill. New characters include Bailey the beluga whale who is voiced by Ty Burrell, and a confused whale shark named Destiny (Kaitlin Olson). Idris Elba and Dominic West are also part of the cast.
A clip was also shown of Dory meeting a grumpy octopus named Hank (voiced by Ed O’Neill) who lost one leg. If you look closely at the photo, you?ll see a picture frame with a photo of Darla, the notorious “fish killer” who wanted Nemo as a pet in the first film.
We?ll also see Dory’s parents ? mom Jenny (voiced by Diane Keaton) and dad Charlie (voiced by Eugene Levy). Diane Keaton appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last year and briefly talked about her role in the movie.
?And the thing is, we both have the same problem: we can?t remember,? the actress said to Ellen, referring to Dory?s short-term memory problem.
Finding Dory?opens in US theatres on June 17th, 2016.
