DeGeneres Jumps Into Finding Nemo 2
Dory's in talks to just keep swimming

DeGeneres Jumps Into Finding Nemo 2

We can debate the necessity or quality of Pixar sequels* until our swim bladders burst, but the fact remains that a follow-up to Finding Nemo is definitely on the way. More evidence for the sequel's existence comes via a Hollywood Reporter story about Ellen DeGeneres entering negotiations to reprise her voice role of forgetful fish Dory.

Though DeGeneres has apparently not yet locked in a deal, we’d imagine it wouldn’t be too tough to snag her back assuming she likes the script. She’s long been one of the more vocal cheerleaders for a sequel to the 2003 film.

Victoria Strouse is on script duty, overseen of course by Nemo godfather and writer-director Andrew Stanton who is also returning to at least supervise the new film. But since this is a Pixar movie, there is no solid info as to the plot. Still, we’d expect to see Albert Brooks’ Marlin back for more. And, hopefully, the sharks and Geoffrey Rush’s Nigel. Oh, and Crush! Dude!

Ahem… The original Finding Nemo will be re-released in 3D next March here in the UK. The sequel is likely to hit sometime in 2016. Now stop tapping on the glass.

*Toy Story sequels: good; Cars sequel: not so good.

Well, that makes one of you. I watched 'Up' yesterday. It's hard to imagine Pixar being allowed to make such a quirky original film as that now. Shame. More

You know what Pixar sequel I'd like to see? Brave 2. I loved the characters and the world they created in that film so much that I was itching to return to it once the credits rolled - and I think it's fair to say the plot for Brave was a little too thin to do all those characters and that world justice. A sequel to Brave could really do the things that perfect sequels are meant to do. Finding Nemo 2 could be beautiful and I'm keen to see what plot and title they come up with. It's a bit of a More
