In Pixar’s upcoming sea-quel to Academy Award-winning Finding Nemo, Finding Dory takes us on another under-the-sea adventure as forgetful fish Dory (Ellen Degeneres) embarks on a mission, with help from Nemo and Marlin (Albert Brooks), to locate her parents.
Released through Entertainment Weekly‘s Twitter feed, Pixar gave their fans an early New Year’s Eve surprise through the first look at two new aquatic mammals. We say hello to Bailey the Beluga whale, and Destiny the large whale shark, and we couldn’t be more excited to see these soon-to-be-favorites hit the big screen.

Modern Family’s Ty Burrell will play the role of Bailey, the beluga who has severe difficulty using his sonar capabilities. Kaitlin Olsen, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star, will voice the role of Destiny, the adorably large whale shark who has trouble swimming straight. Taking Dory’s short-term memory loss into consideration proves that this trio is about to give Marlin a swim for his money.
Finding Dory will hit theaters on June 17, 2016.
