First, we learn that Dory has been separated from her parents from a very young age because of her short-term memory.

Rather than her forgetting them as an adult.

Most of her childhood seems to have involved trying to find her parents, which is pretty devastating.

In the first trailer we saw Dory being separated from Nemo and Marlin after an episode of sleep-swimming. This trailer suggests they get reunited before she gets taken away again.

Oh god, it hurts.

There also seems to be an environmental/theme park theme going on, especially in regard to this.

And importantly, we see Dory understanding other people's problems and supporting them.

And then there's this. Oh god.

I really hope that this has something to do with Dory meeting her parents for the first time and living with them, rather than anything darker.

This film might just destroy us.
