Meet the cast voices for Disney’s ‘Finding Dory”

“Finding Dory” opens in theaters nationwide on June 17.

Finding DoryDisney Pixar’s “Finding Dory” has revealed its full roster of characters, as well as the voice talent tapped to help bring each character to life.

Directed by Andrew Stanton, who helmed the Oscar-winning film “Finding Nemo” “Finding Dory” revisits everyone’s favorite blue tang Dory as she embarks on a life-changing adventure to find her family.

“It really is a whole new chapter this time,” said Stanton. “We’re introducing new characters—each with his or her own unique voice. Everyone has something special to offer, which makes it fun and elevates the whole story. ‘Finding Nemo’ was a great calling card when it came to casting this movie. I don’t take that for granted.”

Check out the cast voices below:

Ellen DeGeneres is back Dory, the bright blue tang with a sunny personality who suffers from short-term memory loss, which normally doesn’t upset her upbeat attitude. That is, until she realizes she’s forgotten something big: her family. Dory’s found a new family in Marlin and Nemo, but she’s haunted by the belief that someone out there is looking for her. She may have trouble recalling exactly what—or who—she’s searching for, but she won’t give up until she uncovers her past and discovers something else along the way: self-acceptance.

Albert Brooks dives in again to help bring Marlin to life. He doesn’t exactly jump at the opportunity to accompany Dory on a mission to the California coast to track down her family. The clownfish may not be funny, but he’s loyal—he realizes he has no choice but to pack up his nervous energy and skepticism and embark on yet another adventure, this time to help his friend.

Ed O’Neill lends his iconic voice to Hank, whois an octopus. Actually, he’s a “septopus”: he lost a tentacle—along with his sense of humor—somewhere along the way. But Hank is just as competent as his eight-armed peers. An accomplished escape artist with camouflaging capabilities to boot, Hank is the first to greet Dory when she finds herself in the Marine Life Institute.

Kaitlin Olson provides the voice of a whale shark named Destiny, who is a clumsy swimmer with a big heart.

Ty Burrell was tapped to give voice to Bailey, the Marine Life Institute’s resident beluga whale, who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz.

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy were recruited to voice Dory’s parents while Idris Elba and Dominic West team up as the voices of Fluke and Rudder, a pair of lazy sea lions who were rehabilitated at the Marine Life Institute.

Bob Peterson is also back as the memorable voice of Mr. Ray, the tune-loving teacher from the reef, who takes Nemo’s education—and that of his fellow undersea students—very seriously. Nobody enjoys Mr. Ray’s class more than Dory, who serves as his cheerful, albeit unnecessary, teacher’s assistant during their illuminating field trips.
