With director Andrew Stanton’s highly anticipated follow-up to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory, arriving in theaters June 17th, AWN has rounded up a slew of concept art from the film.

A sequel to Pixar Animation Studio’s 2003 feature, Finding Nemo, Finding Dory picks up six months after the events of the first film and finds Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) living a quiet life with the clownfishes.  After accompanying Nemo (Hayden Rolence) on a class trip to see the manta rays migrate back home, her homesickness leads the forgetful blue tang fish on a quest to find where she came from.

Check out the gorgeous imagery below showcasing some of the new settings in the film from Pixar artists including Sharon Calahan, Rona Liu, Steve Pilcher, and more:

Here’s the official synopsis:

Disney•Pixar's ‘Finding Dory’ welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks) and Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence). When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark. Deftly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.

Directed by Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL•E), co-directed by Angus MacLane (Toy Story OF TERROR!), and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer WALL•E), Finding Dory opens in theaters on June 17, 2016.
