“Finding Dory” opened with a splash this weekend, breaking records by earning $136.2 million, making it the biggest domestic debut for an animated film, when not adjusting for inflation.

The film, Pixar’s sequel to 2003’s “Finding Nemo,” stars Ellen DeGeneres as the voice of Dory, a Pacific regal blue tang with short-term memory loss. The character was a favorite in “Finding Nemo,” and the sequel involves her quest to find her parents.

The cast also includes familiar characters such as Marlin and Nemo, the clownfish father and son duo who star in the first film, as well as new characters such as Hank, a “septopus” (an octopus with a lost tentacle), a whale shark with poor eyesight named Destiny, and a beluga whale named Bailey. These characters are introduced when Dory is taken to a marine life institute in California.

“Finding Dory’s” unique plot and fun cast of characters have proven to be a hit for adults and children alike. The film is well on its way to becoming another Pixar classic.
