Finding Nemo 2” Gets a New Name and a Release Date


On Tuesday, Disney/Pixar announced that the sequel to the 2003 animated sensation, “Finding Nemo”, will be titled “Finding Dory“. It will be released on November 25, 2015. When it is released, it will be Pixar’s 18th film, and its 5th sequel. The others are: “Toy Story 2 and 3″, “Cars 2″, and “Monsters University”. The “Toy Story” sequels and “Cars 2″ both earned more money than their predecessor worldwide, and “Monsters University” is expected to outdo “Monsters Inc”. Ellen DeGeneres has been confirmed to reprise her role as Dory in “Finding Dory“, but there is no word on whether Albert Brooks will return. Andrew Stanton will return to direct.


Ellen has been waiting for a sequel for a very long time, and seemed ecstatic about it when she made the announcement on her show. In her hilarious monologue, she poked fun at Pixar for waiting so long to make the sequel, but called the script “fantastic, hilarious, warm, and everything you want it to be”. Below is the announcement from ‘The Ellen Show’ and some information from “Finding Dory’s” official Facebook page.

Director and Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton takes audiences back to the extraordinary underwater world created in the original film. “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.”

According to Stanton, “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.
