Meet two new characters from Finding Dory, Bailey and Destiny

A brand new image teases two new characters from Finding Dory, the sequel to Pixar's beloved 2003 animation Finding Nemo

Our favourite forgetful fish Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) will be sure to find new friends in her journey across the oceans to reunite with her loved ones. Entertainment Weekly has now offered a first glimpse at two of those new characters and, boy, are they adorable. 

The memory-challenged Dory will likely find affinity with these two and their own issues, though the pair apparently don't get on so well. Ty Burrell voices beluga whale Bailey (the small one), who struggles with his sonar capabilities. Kaitlin Olson voices whale shark Destiny (the big one), who just can't seem to swim straight. 

"We totally get on each other's nerves," Olson told EW of the characters, "I like to think I'm a shark, but Bailey calls me a whale, and I make fun of his head, because it’s gigantic."

Burrell's best known for his role as the strained patriarch of TV's Modern Family, and Olson stars in the sitcom Always Sunny in Philadelphia. They'll be joined by the likes of Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Idris Elba, Dominic West, and Eugene Levy.

Finding Dory hits UK theatres 29 July. 


See two new 'Finding Dory' friends with familiar voices

Dory has made some new friends since Finding Nemo. 

In sequel Finding Dory, Ellen DeGeneres' forgetful blue tang encounters Bailey and Destiny. Pixar shared concept art of those creatures (Bailey is below; Destiny is above) on the Finding Nemo Facebook page.

Those new sea creatures have familiar voices...

Ty Burrell and Kaitlin Olson voice new characters in 'Finding Nemo' sequel 'Finding Dory.' They talked about their creatures at D23.

Bailey is voiced by Modern Family's Ty Burrell, and Destiny has the voice of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Kaitlin Olson. The two actors actually worked together before-- on short-lived TV series Out of Practice. Olson talked to told Entertainment Weekly about the recording experience:

 “We would just play off each other,” Olson says. “Though to be honest, I was probably the boss of the entire situation, because I always like to be.”

As Disney fans were told at D23 this summer, Bailey is a misguided beluga whale and Destiny is a kind-hearted whale shark (much different from Olson's Always Sunny character, Dee).

Ellen DeGeneres FINALLY gets to reveal 'Finding Dory' cast

Some more characters in Dory's world: Hank, the cantankerous octopus voiced by Ed O'Neil, and Dory's parents voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.

Ty Burrell Makes a Splash as a Whale in 'Finding Dory'

— -- “Modern Family” actor Ty Burrell said he jumped at the chance to play an animated whale in Pixar's newest film, “Finding Dory,” the sequel to “Finding Nemo.”

"I answered, 'Yes, I'll do it. Who is this?" Burrell said of the initial phone call from the Disney-owned animation studio, adding, "Who am I speaking to?"

“Finding Dory” follows the journey of a wide-eyed blue tang fish, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, who suffers from memory loss and embarks on a search across the ocean to find her family.

This story presents a modern twist on the true meaning of "family,” something with which Burrell is familiar from his role as Phil Dunphy on the hit TV comedy series.

Burrell said he thought “Finding Nemo" set the tone in terms of "not having to look the same to be a family."

He added: "You kind of make your family out of the people around you and who you love."

A major theme in “Finding Dory” is "about people with flaws and that you can kind of make … each other whole through friendship," Burrell said.

Burrell, 48, provides the voice of Bailey, a neurotic Beluga whale in captivity at the Marine Life Institute, convinced that his echolocation does not work properly. Neuroticism is something to which he can identify, Burrell jokingly said.

Based on his own research and thoughts of what a Beluga whale would sound like, namely because of the way they look, he came up with a unique "voice" to try for his character.

"You know, there's a bulbous head. And I thought that looks like something that would sound congested. So I came in with a congested voice,” he said.

The directors "were very polite," Burrell said. And after he finished the reading, they told him, "maybe now what we'll try is the rest of the movie in your regular voice," the actor recalled of the humorous situation.

The neuroticism and voice weren't the only things Burrell brought to the table: He spent some serious time homing in on his whale sounds to prepare for the role.

"I'm in the car and, and I'm making these sounds, trying to come up with an echolocation. And I can tell people in the cars around me; basically, they feel like, when I'm pulling up that there's like a clinically depressed ambulance somewhere in the vicinity. Because I'm going, 'Ooooh' with my windows down in the heat."

Finding Dory: Ty Burrell \

Bailey : Can you please keep it down over there? My head hurts.

Dory : Who's that?

Destiny : [whispering]  That's my neighbor, Bailey. He was brought in with a head injury.

Bailey : I know you're talking about me, Destiny.

Destiny : [blocking Bailey's view with her flipper]  He thinks he can't use his echolocation, but I've overheard the doctors talking.

Bailey : I'm right here.

Destiny : There's not a thing wrong with him.

Bailey : Hear every word you're saying about me.

Dory : What's echolocation?

Destiny : Well, Bailey's head is supposed to put out a call and the echo helps him find objects far away.

[Turns to face Bailey] 

Destiny : Oh, but apparently, he's still *healing*.

Bailey : Now I know you're talking about me.

―Bailey's catchphrase

Bailey is a male whale and a supporting character in Disney's Finding Dory.

Official Bio

"Bailey is the Marine Life Institute’s resident whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz. The good news — or bad news, depending on who you ask — is that doctors at the MLI can’t seem to find anything wrong with him. Bailey’s flair for the dramatic never ceases to push his neighbor’s buttons: whale shark Destiny can’t seem to get through to him, no matter how hard she tries. Maybe he’ll listen to new friend Dory, who seems to be full of crazy ideas."

Physical Appearance

Bailey is a plump whale with smooth, white skin and a bulbous head. His flippers and tails are short and he has lavender eyes and white teeth.

Katya groaned with surprise, gratitude and pleasure. After all, a finger is not a tip. It gives a much stronger sensation. And Katya needed them so now to endure this pain. The owner pressed a member to the buttocks and began to run his finger in Katya's ass back and forth, around and around.
