We already knew that Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres were returning for Pixar’s Finding Dory, and now another Nemo star has revealed he’s coming back. Willem Dafoe has confirmed that he is once more voicing Gill in the movie.
The actor said in a recent interview, “Yeah I’ve already started. It’s even better than the first. It’s fantastic. It’s good to say I think it’s going to be better than the first; that’s good advertising! 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.”
Gill is one of the fish from the dentist’s aquarium who ended up helping Nemo after he was captured.
Brooks and DeGeneres will once more be Marlin and Dory, while Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy have signed up to be Dory’s mother and father, along with Ty Burrell as Bailey. The story revolves around Dory finally reuniting with her family.
Andrew Stanton directs from a screenplay by Victoria Strouse (Little Fockers). It’ll be out summer 2016.
