Finding Dory Gets Voices & Alterations

One of the most anticipated upcoming Pixar titles is the ‘Nemo’ sequel “Finding Dory”. Disney used its animated presentation at D23 on Friday to announce the addition of three more cast members to join returnees Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres.

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy have been cast as Dory’s parents, while Ty Burrell will play a friendly beluga whale named Bailey.

Just before the presentation though came word via The New York Times that the film underwent a slight alteration during production.

The change is said to be due to the recently released documentary “Blackfish” about SeaWorld and the mistreatment of killer whales and their trainers. ‘Dory’ writer Victoria Strouse reportedly adjusted the script to change the setting of the film’s finale which was originally going to take place in a marine park.

Pixar has reportedly “decided to restructure that part of the story so that the fish and mammals taken to its aquatic center have the option to leave.”
