Nemo Sequel Is Finding Dory
Ellen DeGeneres talks up the film

Finding Dory

We’ve known since the middle of last year that Andrew Stanton and Team Pixar were planning to make a Finding Nemo sequel. Today, Disney and Pixar have announced the title, Finding Dory, and the fact that it’ll swim into US cinemas on November 25, 2015.

As the title might suggest, the new film will focus a little more on the forgetful blue tang and introduce her family. 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.

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” says Ellen DeGeneres. “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.”

“There is no Dory without Ellen,” says 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.”

Albert Brooks is locked in to play Marlin once again, and given the synopsis, we’d expect an announcement about other casting details soon. While this won’t do much to quell worries about Team Pixar pumping out sequels, it’s worth noting that A) the majority of their follow-ups to date have been great and B) the filmmakers have three original movies on the way versus the two sequels (Monsters University and Finding Dory) planned. There’s no official word on when Finding Dory will arrive on UK screens; hopefully we won’t have to wait too long.

Seriously?
A 2nd Nemo is OK I guess (although it seems a little redundant) but what everyone wants to see is another Incredibles film... Shame that's the only film they seem intent on not making! Even Cars got a sequel, but still no plans for the Incredables? More

Old Disney - Pointless Sequels!
I am hoping that Pixar can deliver. But it does seem like pointless repeating of the formula with no new story, and solely a money making exercise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdLM1iSSThU More

Old Disney - Pointless Sequels!
Great! Another sequel! Soon to be announced: Toy Story 4, 5, and 6, plus Brave 2: Braver. I'm not knocking their impressive body of work but this is how the old regime nearly destroyed the Mouse House. More

RE: I wonder who will play Nemo?
They could use the original actor and tweak his voice - they did the same with Jason Lee in the Incredibles in order for him to play the younger Syndrome... More

I wonder who will play Nemo?
As surely, the actor will have grown up now and his voice will have broken? But if this is set only a year after the first one, then he must need a similar voice... Hmmm. More
