The new characters for “Finding Dory” have officially been released along with the movie’s official storyline.

The upcoming film, scheduled to be released on June 17, will not only be the anticipated sequel to “Finding Nemo,” but it will also follow Dory in her search to find her forgotten parents. According to ABC News, the director of the Pixar film Andrew Stanton says “Finding Dory” is going to be “a whole new chapter.”

“We’re introducing new characters—each with his or her own unique voice,” he said in a statement. “Everyone has something special to offer, which makes it fun and elevates the whole story. ‘Finding Nemo’ was a great calling card when it came to casting this movie. I don’t take that for granted.”

Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, will go on a journey with friends Nemo and Marlin, voiced by Hayden Rolence and Albert Brooks. Along the way, the original characters will meet several new characters.

Here’s a list of the most anticipated:

Jenny and Charlie (Dory’s parents) voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.

Hank, voiced by Ed O’Neill, an octopus or “septopus” who only has seven legs.

Destiny, voiced by Kaitlin Olson, is a clumsy whale shark with a big heart.

Bailey, voiced by Ty Burrell, is the Marine Life Institute’s resident beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz.

Becky, voice of Torbin Bullock, is an kooky loon who takes a liking to Marlin.

And finally, the otters, who’s cuteness is uncontrollable.
