After receiving the first official synopsis from Finding Dory, a simple google search regarding one of the newly released details — that whale shark Destiny is actually nearsighted — led to a preview (no longer available) of Learn to Draw Finding Dory from Walter Foster Jr. Although most of the pages were not available in the preview, it turns out that the entire story pages are visible, leading to some very specific plot points of the film, as is the table of contents, which identifies additional characters.
