Last month we reported that Andrew Stanton had been given the go ahead to put a sequel for Finding Nemo into motion. When that was announced, some wondered what the plot of the story might be. While we are still a long ways away from finding that out, we now have word that Ellen DeGeneres will be reprising her role as the forgetful but ever so friendly fish, Dory, in Finding Nemo 2.
As earlier reported, the Pixar big wigs fell in love with the concept of the story for a Finding Nemo sequel. So this could be a fitting sequel to one of Pixarâ€™s most popular titles.
But donâ€™t read too much into the fact that DeGeneresâ€™ character was signed on first. That doesnâ€™t necessarily mean that the film will be called Finding Dory. Nothing has been confirmed and we donâ€™t even know if Albert Brooks is coming back. The daytime talk show host has been quite vocal about a sequel getting off the ground though. So it’s great to see that she will be back to voice Dory. To be honest, it wouldn’t be much of a Finding Nemo sequel without her.
Victoria Strouse will pen the script, while Lindsey Collins will act as producer. No word yet on when the film would be released, but since Pixar is notorious for doing an extensive amount of research for their films, we could probably see Finding Nemo 2 hit theaters in late 2016.
So what do you think Finding Nemo 2 is about?
