Ellen Degeneres, host of the famous and hilarious The Ellen Degeneres Show, has finally stepped in -more like swam in- and started production of the Disney-Pixar movie Finding Dory. If remembering that fish are friends not food makes you smile, then this is the movie to go and see. The trailer for this sequel to Finding Nemo has already hit Youtube and gotten 20,145,638 views. This animation comes to all movie theaters on June 17, 2016.

The trailer has definitely informed all viewers of the overall plot, but to escape any random confusion, the trailer starts off with our very favorite Nemo being woken up by Dory’s constant sleep muttering and sleep swimming. Our next favorite, Marlin the consistently protective father, escorts Dory back to her bed. The next scene cuts to Dory just swimming away from the father and son. Once the clown fish duo catches up to their friend, they come to the conclusion that poor Dory misses her family and is on a mission to travel around the deep blue sea in search of them. In the trailer Dory at last has dug up memories about her mysterious past. To help her on her new and exciting adventure, comes the pair of clown fish ready to help Dory find and remember her family.

Ellen Degeneres has given insight on how she expresses her character, Dory.

“She’s been lost for a long time, and she’s just tried to act like everything’s fine. And in this film, you see that it’s kind of like she’s taken a little bit of a – she’s paid a toll on it,” DeGeneres said. “She misses the fact that she has a family, and she realizes she has a family. And where are they? Did her parents give her away? Where is her family?”. Degeneres has a very good understanding of the emotion a fish is feeling during the plot of the story and is already doing a good job with tone and such, as seen in the exclusive trailer. She also states why she is pumped up to yet again, play the entertaining and classic blue tang surgeon fish.

“It means a lot to me because it is a really sweet character. And she’s flawed, and I think that it’s important for kids to grow up and see flawed characters that are lovable and that really, matter if they make mistake after mistake, they have a little surrounding pack, like a friendship with all these other fish that they travel with that forgive her,” DeGeneres said. “And even though they’re frustrated with her, they love her.”.

Though the movie does come out this year, it’s still a long wait. Just remember to keep swimming and P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. Then, maybe the delay period won’t seem too intolerable!
