Disney Channel’s follow up to 2003’s Oscar-winning smash Finding Nemo will be titled Finding Dory, and focus on the little blue fish voiced by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. The movie, which will be directed by original Nemo co-director Andrew Stanton, will hit theaters on November 25, 2015.
When Dory said ‘just keep swimming’ in 2003’s Oscar®-winning film ‘Finding Nemo,’ she could not have imagined what was in store for her (not that she could remember). Ellen DeGeneres, voice of the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish.
Ellen: ‘I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. 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.’
In ‘Finding Dory,’ she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way.’ ‘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.
