Pixar is making a "Finding Nemo" sequel called "Finding Dory."
No. I'm not kidding. I would never kid about anything as serious as talking fish.
Ellen DeGeneres, who voiced the forgetful blue fish in the first film, tweeted "It's official," captioning a "Finding Dory" Instagram picture, according to E! News. She also told her talk show audience, "I'm excited that it's finally happening. I read the script and it's fantastic, it's hilarious, it's warm, it's everything that you want it to be."
A Disney-Pixar gold mine is what it will be.
The follow-up to the 2003 Oscar-winning hit will focus on DeGeneres' character, and will be directed by Nemo codirector Andrew Stanton.
"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," the 55-year-old DeGeneras said 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."
According to Statton, the new story picks up about a year after the original ended, and will also include Nemo, Marlin and the Tank Gang.
E! said the film is set to hit theaters Nov. 25, 2015.
