Ellen DeGeneres Finds Her 'Finding Dory' Parents in Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy
'Modern Family' star Ty Burrell is also on board the Disney sequel, taking on a supporting role as a young Beluga whale.


"Finding Dory" has added new voice cast members. During Pixar's presentation for the much-anticipated sequel at the D23 expo in Anaheim, California on Friday, August 9, it is revealed that Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy are tapped to lend their voice, with "Modern Family" star Ty Burrell as another addition to the ensemble.

The story is set one year after "Finding Nemo" takes place, says director Andrew Stanton, who served behind the lens for the first film. It will follow Dory returning to the open sea to find her parents. Ellen DeGeneres is once again the voice of Dory, while Keaton and Levy will voice the long-lost parents. Burell has landed a role as a young Beluga whale.

DeGeneres will not be the only one returning for the upcoming installment. Joining the Oscars 2014 host is Albert Brooks, who has closed deal to be back voicing Marlin. "John Carter" helmer Stanton will direct from a script provided by Victoria Strouse.

In other news from New York Times, the ending of "Finding Dory" reportedly has been changed as a result of the recent SeaWorld documentary "Blackfish". [SPOILER ALERT!] It initially involved a marine park, but the idea was then scrapped, thanks to the exposure of the harsh consequences of habitat-living for marine animals in the doc directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite.

The new version is said to have the film's characters having the option to leave the aquatic center if they desire to do so. No official word is offered yet by Pixar. "Finding Dory" is set to open in November 2015.
