Loved Dory, the ditzy fish from Finding Nemo?(:
Well guess what?
Ellen DeGeneres to star in Finding Nemo sequel
LOS ANGELES — Following years of speculation about whether it would be produced, the sequel to the Oscar-winning animated film Finding Nemo will be released in 2015, studio Disney-Pixar said on Tuesday.
Finding Dory will focus on the absent-minded and chatty blue tang fish voiced by comedienne Ellen DeGeneres, who was a big hit with audiences.
“I’m excited that it’s finally happening,” DeGeneres said on her daytime talk show, Ellen.
“I read the script and it’s fantastic, it’s hilarious, it’s warm, it’s everything that you want it to be,” she added.
Andrew Stanton, who co-directed 2003’s Finding Nemo with Lee Unkrich,said the film will center on Dory reuniting with her “loved ones,” much like the family-focused plot of Nemo. “There is no Dory without Ellen,” Stanton said in a statement. “She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world — not to mention our team here at Pixar.”
Stanton said the movie is set about a year after Nemo and includes the famous clown fish and his father and the Tang Gang.
The film is set for a Nov 25, 2015, release.
