Willem Dafoe Talks ‘Finding Dory’


Total Film is reporting that actor Willem Dafoe has begun voice work on Finding Dory, the sequel to Pixar’s 2003 hit animated feature Finding Nemo.

Reprising his role as the Moorish Idol fish Gill, Dafoe said about the project:

“It’s even better than the first. It’s fantastic…It’s difficult to repeat a success and so many years afterwards, but it’s really cool. I’ve done one session so far and I just am going to have such a good time.”

No other plot elements were revealed in the interview.

As we learned during the D23 Expo 2013 animation presentationFinding Dory takes place about one year after the ending of Finding Nemo. While Dory is happily living with Marlin and Nemo, a traumatic event happens that causes Dory to want to return to her own family. Voicing Dory’s mom and dad are Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy respectively along with a new beluga whale character voiced by Ty Burrell. And, it sounds like Willem Dafoe is going to be along for the ride as well. We will keep you updated as more of the voice cast is revealed for the highly anticipated sequel.
