"When life brings you down, just keep swimming." After almost 13 years of swimming, Dory is ready to return to the big screen in 2016. Fans will be able to get a sneak peek of "Finding Dory" Tuesday afternoon thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, who voices the beloved blue tang from "Finding Nemo" (2003).
The poster for the coming Pixar-Disney film was released online Monday. DeGeneres posted the photo and teased that fans can catch a first look at the movie on Ellen Tube on Tuesday. It's unclear if DeGeneres will reveal a clip or the teaser trailer to the film.

The sneak peek will be released Tuesday, but the exact time has not been announced. It's possible it could air during "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday. The shows airs on NBC at 4 p.m. EST.
The long-awaited sequel to "Finding Nemo" will be released next year and will focus more on the forgetful blue tang. DeGeneres teased the film's plot along with other cast members at the D23 Expo in August, a Disney convention held in Anaheim, California. Dory will be on a journey to find her family and will once again turn to the help of some old friends to find her way across the ocean.
"Finding Dory" will take place a year after the original movie. Some old faces will return like Marlin (Albert Brooks), while there will be new characters like an octopus named Hank (Ed O'Neil). Eugene Levy, Idris Elba and Diane Keaton will also be voicing new characters.
"Finding Nemo" director Andrew Stanton is returning for the sequel and will be joined by co-director Angus MacLane. During an interview with Movie Web in August, DeGeneres said they've been working on the film for more than three years and she's excited for fans to finally get to see the new movie.
"We waited like a decade for this to happen, and I think people will be very happy with what we’re doing. I think we’re going to produce something that, regardless of if you were a 'Nemo' fan or not, you’re gonna love this film," DeGeneres said.
"Finding Dory" is expected to be released on June 17, 2016.
