John Lasseter discussed and showed footages of the upcoming slate of Disney/Pixar animated movies at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Pixar's chief creative officer presented the event with videos and plot lines for the production studio's forthcoming films, such as the "Finding Nemo" sequel titled "Finding Dory," Disney's "Moana," "The Good Dinosaur," "Toy Story 4," and "Zootopia," Variety reported.

For "Finding Dory," Lasseter revealed that the sequel will take place six months after the events of the original film despite its debut 12 years ago. Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) will once again team up with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Alexander Gould) in an effort to find her family, Variety noted.

In the presentation at Cannes, Lasseter unveiled images featuring Diane Keaton as the voice behind Dory's mother and Eugene Hall as the amnesiac fish's father. The news outlet added, "Among the adventures in store this time: a dip through the Pacific Ocean where shipping containers have fallen off boats; a frightening encounter with a giant squid; wading past a kelp forest on California's northern coastline; and new friends in the form of an octopus and a whale-shark named Destiny."

Destiny "thinks she's a whale, but she's actually a shark," Lasseter added, as quoted by Variety. Cinema Blend noted that other actors providing their voices in the sequel are Ty Burrell, Kaitlin Olson, Dominic West, and Idris Elba. Nemo's Tank Gang will also return, which includes Gill (Willem Dafoe) and Deb/Flo (Vicki Lewis). "Finding Nemo" director Andrew Stanton will be back to direct the follow-up flick.

Pixar president Jim Morris said that most of the events in "Finding Dory" will not take place in an ocean but at the Marine Biology Institute of California, Cinema Blend added. Dory will learn that she was born and raised at the rehabilitation complex for marine life before being released into the ocean when she was a kid.

"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," DeGeneres said of the upcoming film, according to a report from E! News. "I'm not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating 'Toy Story 16.' But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It's got a lot of heart, it's really funny, and the best part is-it's got a lot more Dory."

"Finding Dory" is slated for release in theaters on June 17, 2016. Prior to the film's debut in theaters, Pixar will first release "Inside Out" this coming June, "The Good Dinosaur" on November 25, 2015, and "Zootopia" on March 4, 2016, Variety listed.
