What did Ellen DeGeneres's adorable Dory do after "Finding Nemo"? She just kept swimming -- and now we have new details on where she went and who she met along the way!

Ellen was at Disney's D23 Expo this past weekend to promote "Finding Dory," the sequel to "Nemo," following her character on her next adventure. "This is so exciting for me," Ellen told the audience (via USA Today). "I'm so proud of this film. I'm so excited for you to see this."

First, here's the official synopsis for "Finding Dory":

Dory, who suffers from short-term memory loss, has vague recollections of her parents. She decides she must go find them, and ends up in a marine institute where animals are cared for. That's where we meet the new creatures."

Ellen introduced the cast members joining her to tell the story (and the first three also joined her on stage at the event):

Ed O'Neill is voicing Hank, a cantankerous octopus;
Ty Burrell (yep, another "Modern Family" star) voices Bailey the misguided beluga whale;
Kaitlin Olson (of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") voices Destiny, a kind-hearted whale shark;
Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy play Dory's parents Jenny and Charlie.

Here's the first photo from "Finding Dory," showing Dory with Hank:

DO I KNOW YOU? -- In Disney•Pixar's "Finding Dory," everyone's favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), encounters an array of new—and old—acquaintances, including a cantankerous octopus named Hank (voice of Ed O'Neill). Directed by Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL•E”) and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer “WALL•E”), “Finding Dory” swims into theaters June 17, 2016.
D23 also debuted some first-look footage from the movie. As USA Today described, one scene showed Marlin (Nemo's dad) telling Dory he knows a guy who can help her find her parents; in another scene, Dory interacts with Hank, who tries to convince her to give him the tag that's on her fin.

Hopefully Disney releases footage to the public soon, so fans can join the excitement. "Finding Dory" will be released June 17, 2016.
