Meet Baby Dory in this new Finding Dory trailer

Finding Dory may have just smashed box office records over in the States, but it won’t be hitting UK cinema screens until late July, which is partly why a newly released clip from the Finding Nemo sequel has completely taken over the internet.

The other reason? It’s just plain lovely.

In the film snippet we’re introduced to baby Dory and her parents (voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy), as they play hide and seek among the plant life and try to teach Dory how to make friends.

Voiced by Lucia Geddes rather than Ellen DeGeneres, the viral clip sees Dory become distracted by some ‘squishy’ sand, and display more generally loveable behaviour.

The clip also sets the scene for the main Finding Dory plotline, which follows the forgetful fish on her journey to find her family, and discover where she came from.

Naturally, she recruits the help of Marlin, Nemo the Tank Gang and more along the way, with Hollywood heavyweights including Idris Elba and Sigourney Weaver making voice over appearances, alongside Modern Family stars Ed O’Neill and Ty Burrell.

Finding Dory

Opening in US cinemas over the weekend, the film has already raked in £93.3 million, topping Shrek the Third and Toy Story 3, to become both Pixar’s biggest success to date, and the most successful animated film in US box office history.

Praise has also been heaped upon the way the film portrays its female characters, with Variety noting that the film picks up from the work of Inside Out, Brave and Zootopia in presenting more diversity.

“Characters such as Judy Hopps (Zootopia), Riley Andersen (Inside Out), Merida (Brave) and, yes, Dory represent a wider range of female experiences and boast character traits beyond simply waiting around for their prince. They are archers, cops, teenage girls, even forgetful fish.”

Finding Dory

The diversity doesn't end there however. DeGeneres confirmed earlier this month that the film will also feature the first transgender character to appear in a major children's movie.

Talking to USA Today, the chat show host said: “There’s a stingray that’s becoming sting-Rhonda, so there’s a trans sting in the movie.”

We can feel the awards season buzz already.
