The Finding Nemo sequel will take us into the unstable mind of the lovable regal blue tang known as Dory. Pixar has officially announced (in a very long press release) that the followup will be titled Finding Dory. Ellen DeGeneres will star, and Andrew Stanton (Wall-E, John Carter) will return as director.
Finding Dory will center on the Dory and her family. Albert Brooks is returning, but we’ll also see some new characters that will constitute as Dory’s family. The film will take place along the California coastline about a year after the events of the original film. The studio has revealed that the sequel will hit theaters on November 25, 2015.
DeGeneres, who will be the main voice this time around, said in the press release that she had waited for this announcement a “long, long, long, long, long, long time.” Needless to say that she’s very excited about returning, and she also mentioned that the script is “fantastic,” which is easy to believe. This is Pixar after all. DeGeneres said:
“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.”
