In case you haven't heard, yesterday Disney officially announced the long-awaited sequel to 'Finding Nemo'. And no one could be more happier about the news than Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of everyone's favorite absent-minded fish - Dory. She's been campaigning for a continuation to the story for many years, as her TV talk-show followers can attest to.
In a statement made following the announcement, she said, "I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time." She went on to joke, "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."
The sequel will be set in California and many of our favorite characters will be returning, like the Tank Gang, and of course, Marlin and Nemo.
The animated feature will be directed by Andrew Stanton (A Bug's Life, Finding Nemo, Wall-E) and is set to release in theaters November 25, 2015. So until then, we'll have to "just keep swimming". ;)
