Pixar President Jim Morris recently revealed more details and the primary setting for the hotly-anticipated sequel to "Finding Nemo" at a the Comic-Con Experience in Brazil.

Set several months after the end of its predecessor, "Finding Dory" will follow our favorite aquatic friends Marlin, Nemo and Dory, who now all live together on the same reef. Dory, who has severe short-term memory loss, suddenly recalls memories of her past and family while accompanying Nemo on a field trip.

Don't expect to return to P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Lane, Sydney, though.

Morris said that the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California -- where Dory was bred and raised before being released into the wild -- as she searches for her parents.

Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks will reprise their voice roles as Dory and Marlin, respectively. Dory's father, Charlie, will be voiced by Eugene Levy, and Diane Keaton will join the cast as Dory's mother, Jenny.

"Modern Family" star Ty Burrell will lend his voice to a Beluga whale named Bailey -- we can't wait to hear what kinds of conversations he and Dory will have!

The film's setting at the Marine Biology Institute of California feeds the rumors that the ending of the film will reflect a more "environmentally friendly" attitude as a result of the documentary "Blackfish," which condemned SeaWorld's treatment of orcas.

A Pixar employee divulged to the New York Times in August 2013 that the fish and mammals that occupy a "marine park" in the movie will "have the option to leave" at the end of the film.

"Finding Dory" is scheduled to hit theaters on June 17, 2016. Until then ... just keep swimmin'!
