Disney And Pixar Confirm Plans For A ‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel

Finding Nemo has been one of the most beloved releases from the team of Disney and Pixar since its release in 2003. One could argue that every film the two studios have released together are classics, but Nemo is one of the few to be saved from the sometimes dreadful world of sequels….until now.

According to a press release posted today, Disney and Pixar will release Finding Dory theatrically In 2015. The film, which will star Ellen Degeneres reprising her role as the helpful-yet-forgetful blue tang who assisted Nemo in the original, will take place on the California coast line roughly a year after the events of the first film. Many fan favorites will return, including Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, but virtually no additional details are available at this time.

Speaking about the film, Degeneres said ““I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. 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.”

Andrew Stanton, director of Finding Nemo, will helm the sequel. Speaking about the casting of Degeneres, Standton offered “There is no Dory without Ellen. 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.”

We don’t expect plot details to surface for months, if not longer, but will continue to watch as this story further develops. Until that time, comment below and let us know if you will be lining up for Finding Dory.
