With new friends like Hank the septipus and Destiny the whale shark, Dory learns that her parents might be closer than she believes, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way. Features the vocal talents of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, and many more. This film is rated PG and has a running time of 97 minutes.
