Finding Dory was released on Wednesday across Egypt's commercial cinema theatres.
The 3D sequel brings back the same characters from Finding Nemo, the widely successful 2004 film that garnered the Academy Award for Best Animated Film in its year of release.
Allied for Distribution announced the Egyptian release of Finding Dory in the following movie theatres: City Stars mall in Heliopolis, Galaxy Mall of Arabia and Americana Plaza in 6th October, Sun City in Heliopolis, Golf City Mall in Obour City, and Point 90 in the 5th Settlement, New Cairo.
The film is also screening in Alexandria's movie theatres, including the Cineplex Green Plaza, San Stefano and City Center Carrefour.
Finding Dory reminds us of the forgetful blue tang fish who suffers from short-term memory loss. She only remembers that she was separated from her parents as a child.
With the help of her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory tries to find her family, whose whereabouts she forgot.
She ends up in a Marine Life Institute which is supposedly "the fish hospital."
Dory is voiced by American comedian and Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres, who was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards.
The story is written by two-time Academy Award winner Andrew Stanton, who also wrote Finding Nemo and WALL*E.
Finding Dory is co-directed by Stanton himself along with Angus MacLane, who directed UP.
The film was released in the United States on 17 June.
