After The Jungle Book, Happy New Year writer comes on board for Disney's Finding Dory

News Agencies | Updated on: 4 June 2016, 13:00 IST

After the success of the Hindi versions of The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War, writer Mayur Puri has been roped in by Disney to pen the Hindi dialogues of Finding Dory.

Disney Pixar's Finding Dory voice-over cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Ty Burrell, and Idris Elba.

Dory will be in a never-seen-before avatar in the Hindi trailer of Finding Dory.

"Finding Dory is an extremely special and rare film because like its prequel 'Finding Nemo', it deals with our biggest fear -- the loss of loved ones. When I was a little kid, I was lost in a fair for a few minutes (as filmy as it sounds) and I still remember the roller-coaster ride of emotions I went through upon losing and then finding my family. Now, years later, as a father, I obsess over the safety of my family," Puri said in a statement.

"This emotion is so deep in our core that it resonates with every single person. Finding Dory has all the masala of those yesteryear blockbusters. It has oodles of humour, adventure, outstanding dialogue and drama and edge of the seat action. After The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War, this is my third project with Disney India," he added.

He also shared that they worked very hard on the script and dubbing director Eliza Lewis has put together some of the country's best voice talent on this project. Puri has penned the scripts of Happy New Year and Om Shanti Om amongst other films.

Finding Dory releases in IMAX and 3D on 17 June in English and Hindi.
