Pixar dropped the final “Finding Dory” trailer this morning, and you might want to grab the tissues before you watch it.
The sequel to everyone’s favorite fishy film, “Finding Nemo,” follows Dory, a blue tang, on a quest to find her parents. With Nemo and his father by her side, she traverses the ocean and encounters a whole new world of undersea inhabitants as she uncovers her past.
The new trailer dives deeper into Dory’s story, suggesting she was separated from her family at a young age—cue the waterworks. Because of her short-term memory loss, she doesn't remember searching far and wide for them during her childhood.
More characters join the cast when Dory’s adventure leads her to California’s Marine Life Institute. Here, she meets Hank the octopus, a clever cephalopod who outwits the institute’s employees; Bailey the beluga whale, who struggles with his echolocation skills; and Destiny the whale shark, who has a tendency to swim straight into the glass walls of her enclosure.
The end of the trailer hints at what could be a heartwrenching conclusion for the sequel: Nemo asks his father, Marlin, “Do we have to say goodbye to Dory?” DON’T DO IT, PIXAR. NO ONE DESERVES THAT.
Dory hits the big screen on June 17. Until then, just keep swimming.
