The film is set about a year after the Finding Nemo movie. Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang are some of the returning characters.

Director Andrew Stanton said in a statement, "There is no Dory without Ellen. She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world - not to mention our team here at Pixar. One thing we couldn't stop thinking about was why she was all alone in the ocean on the day she met Marlin. In Finding Dory,... she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way."
