HBO has undergone some notable transition in recent months, adding a new programming president in the wake of multiple lukewarm developments, but the first major order at its new regime is at least a hopeful one.

Just yesterday a bunch of new photos introduced us to several of the characters from Finding Dory, including some totally cute sea otters (seriously) and a pair of sea lions voiced by Idris Elba and Dominic West (The Wire reunion!).
