Pixar on Tuesday officially announced its sequel to ‘Finding Nemo’ is ‘Finding Dory’.
The Disney-owned computer animation company said its follow up to 2003’s Oscar-winning smash Finding Nemo will be titled Finding Dory and focus on the little blue fish voiced by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. The movie, which will be directed by original Nemo co-director Andrew Stanton, will hit theaters Nov. 25, 2015.
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” DeGeneres said in a release. “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.”
Pixar said the film sequel is “set in part along the California coastline” and, along with several returning favorites, “welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.”
