Finding Nemo fans have been anxiously awaiting a sequel to the widely-popular Pixar film and now it looks like that wish is about to become a reality.
The sequel, which appears to be titled Finding Dory, was announced by Ellen DeGeneres who voiced the forgetful fish n the first film.
Finding Dory will focus on Nemo, Marlin and friends on the hunt for a lost Dory.
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said DeGeneres. “I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating ‘Toy Story 16.’ But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It’s got a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is—it’s got a lot more Dory.”
John Carter director and Pixar’s Andrew Stanton is taking the helm.
“There is no Dory without Ellen,” said Stanton. “She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world—not to mention our team here at Pixar. One thing we couldn’t stop thinking about was why she was all alone in the ocean on the day she met Marlin. In ‘Finding Dory,’ she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way.”
Finding Dory will take place one-year after the first film and will feature a host of new characters.
Finding Dory will open in the US from November 25, 2015.
