Dory the forgetful fish finally has a clue to her mysterious origins: Morro Bay.

Disney revealed the Central Coast connection to its upcoming animated movie “Finding Dory” on Wednesday when it debuted the first 27 minutes of the “Finding Nemo” sequel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Director Andrew Stanton asked attendees at the annual convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners not to reveal what happens in the movie’s opening two minutes.

But as Entertainment Weekly magazine reported, “the first half hour of ‘Dory’ quickly reintroduces Dory, Marlin, Nemo and a couple of other familiar fishfaces from ‘Finding Nemo.’ ”

In Disney's upcoming movie "Finding Dory," the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish reunites with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.

In “Finding Dory,” the lovable blue tang with short-term memory issues starts to remember her past.

Specifically, Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) recalls her parents (voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy) and where she came from: a place called “The Jewel of Morro Bay.” She then sets out to find her family.

“Finding Dory” opens in theaters nationwide June 17.
