13 December 2014 1:20 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Plot and setting details for Finding Dory have emerged at Comic Con Experience in Brazil.

According to Slashfilm (via Omelete), Pixar president Jim Morris revealed that the majority of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, a large rehabilitation facility for marine life.

Both Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo will return in the sequel and make the journey with her - Willem Defoe will be returning too, but it is unclear in what capacity.

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy have signed up to play the voices of Dory's parents.

Meanwhile, The Wire's Idris Elba and Dominic West will reunite and voice characters in the sequel.

Finding Dory has previously been delayed, and is »

Plot details for Pixar’s Finding Dory

9 December 2014 9:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Details have been spotty for Disney and Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory. Original claims stated that the movie would be about Dory finding her parents with the help of Marlon and Nemo from the Great Barrier Reef to the California Coastline, and then rumours stated it would be set in an aquatic park. But critical and social backlash and outcry against Seaworld due to documentary Blackfish put a stop to that.

Now it is being reported by Collider (via Omelete) that the movie will be set in just one location.

“[Pixar President Jim] Morris said the sequel takes place six months after the first movie, and Dory, now living in the same reef as the clown fishes, living a normal and quiet life, dealing with her forgetfulness. One day she goes with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, which makes her feel home sick »

New 'Finding Dory' plot details have Dory finding her family...meta

9 December 2014 8:43 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

During the recent Ccxp - Comic-Con Experience in Brazil, Pixar president Jim Morris dropped a few choice tidbits about the plot of the upcoming “Finding Dory” movie. The sequel will pick up about a year after the adventures of “Finding Nemo,” with the main cast settled into the 9-to-5 routine of tropical fish. Then, during a field trip to see the migration of “das mantas” (Google translates this as “the blankets” but probably manta rays or whales), Dory’s memory is triggered and she runs off to find her family, leaving Nemo and Marlin to chase after. The original reporting site, Omelete, is in Portugese so the translations may be slightly off. But in essence, Morris said: [“Finding Dory”] is mostly set in the Marine Biology Institute of California, a huge complex of rehabilitation [for] marine and aquarium life. Dory learns that [she] was born and raised [at the Institute], and released [back into] the ocean [while] still young. Morris »

Pixar's 'Finding Dory' Story and Setting Revealed

9 December 2014 7:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Pixar has a full upcoming slate that includes next summer's Inside Out followed by The Good Dinosaur in November, along with the much anticipated debut of Toy Story 4 in 2017, one of their most anticipated projects is a sequel to the 2003 classic Finding Nemo. Omlete recently caught up with Pixar President Jim Morris, who spoke about the 2016 release. He offered the first new information we've heard about this follow-up in quite sometime, revealing the story and the setting.

Even though it will have been 13 years since we last saw Nemo and Dory, Finding Dory will pick up a mere six months since the original. Dory (a role being reprised by Ellen DeGeneres) is living a quite life among the other clown fish. After going on a class trip with Nemo, she begins to feel homesick and sets out on a quest to find her humble origins. Says Jim Morris »

New 'Finding Dory' Plot and Setting Details Revealed

9 December 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Pixar's upcoming "Finding Nemo" sequel, "Finding Dory," just uncovered a huge trove of information about the film's cast, plot, and setting.

"Dory" focuses on the titular fish (once again voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), and picks up only a few months after the 2003 original left off. Dory is living on the reef with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo, and joins Nemo on a class field trip, which triggers memories from her past.

The intel was revealed by Pixar president Jim Morris during a recent appearance at Ccxp (Comic Con Experience) in Brazil, where Morris also discussed the primary setting for the flick. A large portion of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, described as a large rehabilitation complex for aquatic life where Dory was born, and from which she was released into the ocean at a young age.

New Details For Finding Dory Swim In

9 December 2014 3:29 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though we’ve learned some details about Pixar’s Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory (including that Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy are playing the parents to Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful fish), not much else had emerged about the film. Now, Brazilian site Omelete (via Collider, which offers a translation) has talked to freshly anointed Pixar president Jim Morris about the film, and he spilled a few more details.The new movie reportedly takes place six months after the events in Nemo, with Dory happily settled and living with the marine community in the same reef as Marlin and his son. She still has issues with her memory, and when she attends one of Nemo’s class trips to watch manta rays migrate home, she starts to have serious homesickness feelings and wants to learn where her family is now.According to Morris, that will be on the California coastline as “the »

Finding Dory Will Anchor Its Story In One Location

8 December 2014 2:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pixar Animation’s sequel to their massive aquatic hit, Finding Nemo, is taking its time getting to the big screen, but at least now we know the direction it’s swimming in. Titled Finding Dory, the movie is set to focus on the origins of chatterbox fish Dory from the first movie. As its name suggests, the narrative drive will stem from little Dory’s desire to find herself, an idea which kickstarts a mission to track down her parents.

Since the sequel nabbed the greenlight, rumours of where exactly Dory, Nemo and co. will venture have ranged from Sea World to the Great Barrier Reef. It would seem that the shenanigans of Dory’s self-exploration are likely to be more stationary than the first movie, thanks to a handful of details revealed by Pixar President Jim Morris in an interview via Collider.

Here’s their scoop in full:

New Details Revealed about Finding Dory Setting; Movie Is Mostly Set at One Location

8 December 2014 1:19 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Last year, we reported that Pixar's Finding Dory would be about the forgetful fish (Ellen DeGeneres) trying to find her parents with the help of Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo.  We also learned that her story would take the trio from the Great Barrier Reef to along the California coastline.  Granted, the film is still far off and a lot can change when it comes to an animated movie, but it's not a premise, especially if you have Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy voicing Dory's parents.  There was also word that the movie would take place at an aquatic park, and that the ending was tweaked in response to the outcry from the heart-wrenching documentary Blackfish, which is about the abuse of orcas at Sea World. Now a recent interview with Pixar President Jim Morris has provided new details regarding one of the film's major settings and how it affects the plot. »

New Story Details Emerge on Pixar's Aquatic Sequel 'Finding Dory'

8 December 2014 1:15 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Disney has set the Pixar Animation sequel Finding Dory for release on June 17th, 2016, which is still over a year and a half away. However, since this is an animated film we're talking about, a lot of the details on the film are already firm since it takes so long for the film to be completed. We know that because over a year ago, Pixar was already working on a new ending for the sequel to Finding Nemo due to the backlash against SeaWorld following the damning details revealed in the documentary Blackfish. Other than that details on the film that is being co-directed by Pixar veterans Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane ("Toy Story of Terror") have been relatively scarce, but some new tidbits have surfaced today. More below! We already knew that the story was going to follow Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) and Marlin (Albert Brooks) on a journey to »

TV Land cancels 'Hot in Cleveland' after 6 seasons

17 November 2014 2:21 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

TV Land cancels “Hot in Cleveland” after 6 seasons The current season will be the last for TV Land’s 1st-ever scripted comedy, which produced more than 100 episodes. The cancelation comes a few months after creator Suzanne Martin told The Hollywood Reporter that she would "love to do at least eight seasons." Katherine Heigl: It “sucks” that Shonda Rhimes still views me negatively “The last one with Shonda… it sucks,” she tells "Extra" of the “Grey’s Anatomy” creator’s recent comments on her “no as*holes policy," referring to Heigl. I am sorry that she feels that way and I wish her nothing but greatness, and I have nothing negative to say about Shonda. I'm a big fan of her work. I watch 'Scandal' every week, and so I'm sorry she's left with such a crappy impression of me. I wish I could do something to change that. »

Meet Pop, The Newest Entrant In Cable’s Battle For Bigger, Broader Audiences

17 November 2014 9:04 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Is there enough room on the bubble for Pop?

When Pop, a cable network most people probably refer to as Tvgn, launches January 14, it will do so with programs that celebrate the continuing ability of such, well, institutions,  as New Kids On the Block and “Everybody Loves Raymond” to cut a swath through popular culture. And it will debut with some new programs in tow: a comedy series featuring Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara and the eyebrow-raising title “Schitt’s Creek,’ as well as a reality program that examines the ability of former soap stars from daytime and primetime to produce a new sudser.

But the new network’s schedule is only the tip of an ongoing battle by major media companies to win viewers by highlighting celebrity and fun. Pop is actually a new effort from CBS Corp. and Lionsgate to put forth their own candidate in the »

'Kung Fu Elliot' Review: 5 Reasons to Watch the Surreal Canadian Doc

7 November 2014 3:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With wins at Slamdance and Austin's Fantastic Fest, "Kung Fu Elliot," a stranger-than-fiction documentary about one man's quest to become Canada's first action hero, has begun to amass the kind of cult following and rave reviews its title subject only dreamed of.

Initially starting out as a quirky underdog tale about Elliot "White Lightning" Scott, Matthew Bauckman and Jaret Belliveau's film takes a hard left turn as the filmmakers, the people around him and the audience start to come to the realization that Scott isn't quite the delusional-but-lovable dreamer he first seemed to be.

With "Kung Fu Elliot" premiering in Toronto on Friday before expanding across Canada, the official Hot Docs selection is half-character study and half-character assassination, and really, it has to be seen to be believed. Here's five more reasons why you should check out the movie when it comes to theatres near you.

21 October 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” Walters said she was done with the franchise after the 2013 edition. But ABC announced this morning that "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” will return Sunday, Dec. 14 at 9 pm. Why hasn’t any new fall show been canceled yet? It’s unusual to have zero cancelations one month into the season. But this is an unusual season, and EW reports that one of the factors in the lack of cancelations is the lack of confidence in the midseason replacement shows. Plus: It’s hard to figure out what a hit is nowadays. Pop network orders its 1st scripted series: “Schitt’s Creek” with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara The current TV Guide Network will transform into Pop, with a comedy about a rich family that loses it all in a Ponzi scheme and ends up living in a motel. »
