Disney and Pixar to Release Finding Nemo Sequel, Finding Dory

Finding Nemo is making a comeback! Disney and Pixar announced today that the movie is getting a sequel with the upcoming release of Finding Dory!

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said Ellen DeGeneres, who voices Dory, in a statement. “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.”
Finding Dory is reportedly set on the California coastline, one year after Finding Nemo (though the movie first came out in 2003). The animated flick will include many of the characters from the first film, such as Marlin, the Tank Gang, and of course, Nemo. Andrew Stanton will direct the film, with Albert Brooks, who voiced Marlin in the first film, returning as well.
Finding Nemo was a huge success for Disney and Pixar. The movie, now considered a Disneey classic to the younger generations, took home a total worldwide gross of $921.7 million, and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Finding Dory will hit theaters on Nov. 25, 2015!

Yes, the kid in me unashamedly does want to see this. And, if you’re just honest with yourself, you kind of do too!
