Disney’s annual fan convention taking place in Anaheim, California will host the first footage from the Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory.
Walt Disney Animation Studios announced on Monday that Finding Dory will join several other upcoming films as part of their D23 presentation taking place on Friday, August 14.
The event titled “Every Story Is a Journey: The Upcoming Films of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios” will be hosted by Pixar’s Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter, who will introduce footage from Pixar’s Dory and The Good Dinosaur, and Disney Animation’s Zootopia and Moana.
“Filmmakers will unveil never-before-seen footage from Pixar’s upcoming The Good Dinosaur and Finding Dory and Disney Animation’s Zootopia and Moana. The event will include surprise announcements, musical performances, and appearances by the films’ star voice talent,” Disney promises.
Zootopia, which opens in theaters this March, will get a panel of its own on Saturday, August 15. “Join directors Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph), producer Clark Spencer (Wreck-It Ralph, Bolt), and artists from the incredible production team as they introduce rookie rabbit-officer Judy Hopps, con-artist fox Nick Wilde and a host of dynamic animal characters, sharing footage and behind-the-scenes stories with D23 EXPO-goers,” Disney says.
