FINDING NEMO sequel will be called FINDING DORY, debuts November 2015
HOLY SHORT TERM MEMORY, BATMAN!
In an announcement that displeases literally no one, Disney Pixar has announced that the sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo (yes, it’s been TEN YEARS) will be called Finding Dory, and is set to hit theaters November 2015.
In a press release from the animation giants:
“There is no Dory without Ellen. 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….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.”
And Dory herself, Ellen DeGeneres had this to say about the long-anticipated follow-up:
“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.”
So. YEAH. Thinking about it, I honestly can’t believe it’s been a decade since Finding Nemo came out. I was a KID for crying out loud. That being said, I am just as (if not more than) excited about this sequel than I was for the original. More Dory, more hilariously intelligent oceanic humor? Yes please.
