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.
Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with the first official synopsis for Finding Dory (June 17, 2016), which is as follows:
In honor of today’s earlier release of the first trailer for Finding Dory (June 17, 2016), Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with an ultra high resolution still from the film featuring Dory encountering her old friend, Destiny, for the first time all over again. Voiced by Kaitlin Olson, Destiny is a whale shark — so does that make her a whale or a shark? There’s no way science could know for sure. Destiny is just one of Dory’s many new friends in the film such as Hank, Bailey, Little Dory, Gerald and more.
Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory reunites everyone’s favourite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?
The film also features tons of new characters including Destiny, a (very confused) whale shark, Hank the
octopus septopus, Bailey the beluga whale, Little Dory, Otter and Gerald the Sea Lion.
In addition to featuring Marlin, Dory and newly introduced pals Hank the Septopus, Destiny the Whale Shark and Bailey the Beluga Whale, we also see returning favorites Squirt, Sheldon and Tad (although Monogram’s product description names Pearl).
However, seen here but not named (presumably identified by ‘Exclusive A’ and ‘Exclusive B’) are what appear to be a sea otter — who has been briefly mentioned in the past — as well as a grumpy looking sea lion.

The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.
Though he has certainly made a name for himself in his own right, one of celebrity astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s hobbies is putting pop culture and films to the scientific test, often obliterating any potential source in reality they may claim. With just a day until Pixar Animation Studios releases their upcoming animated film, The Good Dinosaur (November 25, 2015), deGrasse Tyson gives his spin on whether it would be possible for us humans and dinosaurs to co-exist even if dinosaurs had never met their colossal fate. In a word, no. Check out why in the video embedded below.
Pixar Animation Studios has released a new clip from their upcoming animated film, The Good Dinosaur (November 25, 2015), which can be found embedded below. The new clip, titled ‘Family’ is part of an extended scene that was previewed at Disney D23 Expo earlier this year in which Arlo teaches Spot and soon learns they may have more in common than he thought.
Pixar Animation Studios has released a new clip from their upcoming animated film, The Good Dinosaur (November 25, 2015), which can be found embedded below.

In addition, we have a few behind-the-scenes featurettes which feature the voice actors at work as well as some of the scoring from the film and the Pixar team at work.
