Back in July last year, we mentioned that Pixar studios were going to get busy again with the production of the sequel to the Oscar-winning “Finding Nemo”. At first, people were under the assumption that it was going to be called “Finding Nemo 2“, as with almost all (if not all) animation sequels. Lo and behold, we were all wrong.
Instead of being called, “Finding Nemo 2”, Disney-Pixar announced that it’ll be called “Finding Dory”. Yes, an entire animation film on the absent-minded and chatty blue tang fish. The icing on the cake is the fact that they’re getting comedienne Ellen DeGeneres to be the voice of the silly fish!
Ellen confirmed the news on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, “I’m excited that it’s finally happening. I read the script and it’s fantastic, it’s hilarious, it’s warm, it’s everything that you want it to be”. On that note, Andrew Stanton (who co-directed “Finding Nemo”) also gave his two cents about the upcoming sequel when he stated, “There is no Dory without Ellen. She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world – not to mention out team here at Pixar”.
And you know what, though? We have to agree.
“Finding Dory” is set for a 25th November 2013 release.
