“Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!” Title image and plot details revealed.
Disney/Pixar have sent out a press release announcing that director Andrew Stanton’s ‘Finding Nemo’ sequel is scheduled to arrive in cinemas November 2015. The film, officially titled ‘Finding Dory’ will see Ellen DeGeneres reprising her role as Dory, the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, and Albert Brooks returning to voice Marlin the clownfish.
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said DeGeneres in a statement. “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.”
Stanton, a Pixar veteran, 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.”
According to Stanton, ‘Finding Dory’ takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favourites 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.
