Finding Dory Revealed Its Full Cast Of Characters, Here's What We Know

On June 17th, audiences far and wide will be able to reunite with Dory, Marlin, and Nemo in Disney / Pixar's summer offering for 2017, Finding Dory. Up until now, we've had a vague idea of who would be co-starring alongside the returning characters and cast-members that Andrew Stanton's sequel has attracted. Now, thanks to a huge announcement made by the folks at Disney, we've got the full list of characters, both old and new, who will be a part of Dory's journey of self discovery! Prepare to swim along, as we bring you the cast of Finding Dory.

First, we'll start with the returning characters from Finding Nemo, who for the most part are in tact – except for two major recasts, for obvious reasons.

Marlin and Nemo

Returning Cast Members

Ellen DeGeneres – Dory

Albert Brooks – Marlin

Hayden Rolence – Nemo

Bob Peterson – Mr. Ray

Andrew Stanton and Bennett Dammann – Crush and Squirt, the sea turtles.

The eagle eyed among you will have noticed that both Nemo and Squirt have been re-cast with new actors for Finding Dory, seeing as the original voices of both characters have outgrown their roles from the previous film. Replacing Alexander Gould and Nicholas Bird, the original voices for Nemo and Squirt, respectively, are Hayden Rolence and Bennett Dammann.

Of course, Dory's adventure to the Marine Life Institute will be filled with an assortment of colorful characters, with even more interesting cast members to be introduced. It is our honor to present to you the new cast and characters joining the Finding Dory family.

Charlie and Jenny

New Cast Members

Ed O'Neill – Hank the "septopus"

Katlin Olson – Destiny, the whale shark

Ty Burrell – Bailey, the beluga whale

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy – Jenny and Charlie, Dory's Parents

Idris Elba and Dominic West – Fluke and Rudder, a pair of sea lions

Torbin Bullock – Becky, a loon

Bill Hader and Kate McKinnon – an unidentified cameo as a fish couple

Obviously, the huge addition to the Finding Dory cast is the absolutely perfect pair of Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy as Dory's parents. Thinking of the comedic antics the two legendary comedians could get into alone is exciting enough. However, the fact that Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks are set to cross paths with all of the comedic all-stars on the list above is something that makes the wait for Finding Dory that much more rewarding. Though if we were a betting organization, we'd put money on Idris Elba and Dominic West stealing the show as a pair of lazy sea lions.

The wait is over when Finding Dory finds its way into theaters on June 17th.
