Dory will meet her family...
IGN reports that Disney and Pixar have announced a sequel to Finding Nemo, called Finding Dory. It will be released on November 25, 2015.
The film will take place a year after the events of the first film, and many favorites will return, including Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang. It will take place along the California coastline.
Ellen DeGeneres will be back as Dory. She said: "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."
Director Andrew Stanton will oversee the sequel. He added: "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."
