New 'Finding Dory' Cast and Characters Announced

"Finding Dory" will be released in theaters in June 2016.

Instead, it will introduce a whole host of new characters to fans.

According to Andrew Stanton, the director of the film, "Finding Dory" is meant to be "a whole new chapter."

“We’re introducing new characters—each with his or her own unique voice," he said in a statement. "Everyone has something special to offer, which makes it fun and elevates the whole story. ‘Finding Nemo’ was a great calling card when it came to casting this movie. I don’t take that for granted.”

While on her journey, several new characters will come into play. Here are a few notables:

Destiny (Kaitlin Olson): Destiny, a whale shark, has poor eyesight and a warm personality. She and Dory become friends when they wind up in the same pool.
