It’s been nearly a decade since Finding Nemo was released, but today, much to the delight of many, including Ellen DeGeneres, we learn that there will be a sequel!
Finding Dory will center around, you guessed it, Dory and her journey which reunites her with her loved ones. From the press release:
According to Stanton, “Finding Dory” takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
There’s still some time to wait though, as it won’t be released until November 25, 2015, but what’s another couple of years?
Check out this video from Ellen’s show this morning were she announces the film and reminisces on the (many) times she’s made the point that Nemo was still sequel-less.
