'Sea' new Finding Dory characters!

Academy Awards Finding Dory

Finding Dory is now little more than three months away. We’ve gotten some intriguing teasers and character biographies, and now we’re excited to share some new images from the film. These images are courtesy of USA Today.
Dory’s parents we’ve already known (voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy), along with whale shark Destiny (Kaitlin Olsen), beluga whale Bailey (Ty Burrell), and the octopus Hank (Ed O’Neill).

There are some other unique characters as well, including loons and sea otters. The loons will apparently be stands in for the memorable sea gulls from Finding Nemo.

Quite the distinct character design! Looks a little shifty as well…

These baby sea otters are so adorable! According to Stanton, they kept the otters cute rather than dangerous. 

“The truth is, otters are quite vicious. But no one wants that to be true. So we didn’t follow that. The otters ended up being more successful as cute creatures that just stare at you. We knew the effect they have on people.”

Possibly the most interesting additions, Rudder (left, voiced by Dominic West) and Fluke (Idris Elba).

Rudder and Fluke’s voice actors appeared in the wildly successful television drama The Wire, of which Stanton is a huge fan. “I really wanted to witness a Wire reunion.” We can bet that there will be plenty for devoted fans to laugh over once these two sea lions take center swim.
Tell us what you think of these new characters and images! Finding Dory splashes into theaters on June 17 of this year.
