Pixar Officially Titles ‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel ‘Finding Dory’; Scheduled For 2015 Release
  |  @   |  

Andrew Stanton‘s career in live-action filmmaking may be on hold for right now, but there is no question that he knows his way around directing an animated film. It was announced last year that he along with Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks are returning for a Finding Nemo sequel. Now Disney has announced that the sequel is officially titled Finding Dory, and Pixar has scheduled the film to be released on November 25, 2015.

It’s a big ocean, so we’ll be seeing brand new characters enter the fold, and the film will take place a year after the events of Finding Nemo, where our fish friends from both the ocean and the fish tank find themselves swimming along the California coastline.

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said DeGeneres. “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.”

But the most important plot reveal comes from Stanton.

“There is no Dory without Ellen,” said Stanton. “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.”

Reoccurring themes connect the two films and it makes sense that Dory play a huge part in its sequel. So are you ready for Finding Dory?
