Finding Nemo Finding Nemo


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Dory with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Finding Nemo

Dory is a Paracanthurus hepatus who witnesses the boat that Nemo was taken away in and accompanies Marlin in his attempt to take Nemo back. While optimistic, she suffers from anterograde amnesia, which supposedly runs in her family. Despite her condition, she is able to read human and thus is able to decipher Nemo's location on a dropped pair of diving goggles. The address proves to be the first piece of information that Dory is capable of remembering, making her a valuable asset to Marlin's journey.

No contest. Ellen DeGeneres pretty much IS Dory! She's so lovable and adorable as the ditzy female tag-along in the film but also pulls off the emotional sweet spots really well.

I find the voice acting in the game rather poor. Jennifer Hale does a good impression of Ellen but the lines feel extremely forced and lack the charm of the character. She's a brilliant Mrs Little, but a rather mediocre Dory.

Ellen for me.

1. Ellen DeGeneres- She is naturally able to pull off Dory's upbeat and sometimes forgetful personality.
2. Jennifer Hale- Her impression isn't bad, but it sounds a bit too deep and it sounds like she is trying to make Dory sound tough.

Jennifer is OK, but you can tell it's her.

Ellen made her annoying as all heck. Jennifer toned her down a bit, so she gets my vote easily.

Ellen DeGeneres IS Dory. Jen Hale is a great replacement though.

Ellen gave the character more energy and was the original, but that said, Jennifer still does a great impression.

Ellen made Dory the type of character that she is so I'm definitely going with her.

Jennifer does an excellent impression of Ellen but you can't beat the original.

This right here is why Jennifer Hale is one of my favorite VA's. Amazing impression of Ellen, even though she did her own thing in some aspects.

Can't beat the one and only Ellen Degeneres though, for being the original and all.

Ellen was a natural choice to voice Dory, but Jennifer Hale was awesome too. I never knew that was her, and she's usually pretty easy to pick out.

Although I'd like to vote for Hale, the problem is that she was hired to do an impression, so that being said, I will give it to the original.

Jennifer Hale does a pretty damn good Ellen DeGeneres impression, Ellen obviously wins this

@john Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Took me a while to figure it out, but it's that hint of the Wakko rasp that gave him away.
