Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell & Diane Keaton Set For Finding Dory
Pixar announces more casting

10 August 2013  |  Written by James White

As part of its big D23 Expo today, Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton made the trip from Pixar to talk about the film’s sequel, Finding Dory and to announce new casting for the film, including Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell and Diane Keaton.

We already knew that the film would take a longer look at Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful Blue Tang Dory and her search for her family. It should be little surprise, then, that Levy and Keaton will be Dory’s parents Charlie and Jenny, while Burrell is set as comic sidekick Bailey, a beluga whale (which goes some way to explaining Dory’s ability to speak whale in Nemo.)

Albert Brooks is, as was previously announced, back as Marlin and John Ratzenberger, Pixar’s good luck charm, is naturally taking a role. Stanton wouldn’t say much more about the film, though he did hint that Dory’s family is bigger than it appears.

In related, possibly spoilery Dory news, it seems co-writer Victoria Strouse is making some tweaks to the film’s finale, which is apparently set at a SeaWorld-style park. According to the New York Times, a section that sees fish and mammals transported to a SeaWorld-style park will show them having the option to leave, as part of a response to controversial documentary Blackfish. Of course, we’re a little over two years away from the planned November 2015 release of the film, so many more changes could happen before it hits screens.
