Just keep swimming! The first poster for Pixar’s Finding Dory was released Monday, showcasing a sweet throwback to 2003’s Finding Nemo.

“She just kept swimming,” says the tag on the poster, which gives fans a look at Dory’s fin as she swims in the ocean.

Ellen DeGeneres – who voices the adorable, absentminded blue tang fish named Dory – shared the poster on Twitter, with an announcement about a trailer to be released Tuesday.

The sequel showcases a story from Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton, who told the crowd at Disney’s D23 Expo in August that his idea for a follow up came from his own concern about the sweet-natured fish with short-term memory loss.

“I wanted to know that if this charming forgetful fish ever got lost again, that she would be okay, that she would find her way home,” Stanton said. “And at the end of Finding Nemo, I wasn’t confident about that. So that’s when I knew I had another story.”

Picking up six months after the first film and featuring Dory’s quest to answer questions about her past, Finding Dory‘s voice cast includes returning star Albert Brooks (Marlin), Katlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Modern Family leads Ed O’Neill and Ty Burrell, Idris Elba (Luther), Dominic West (The Affair), Diane Keaton (And So It Goes) and Eugene Levy (American Pie).

Finding Dory swims into theaters June 17, 2016. Get a closer look at the poster below.
