Finding Nemo Is Getting a Sequel called Finding Dory.

Finding Dory

Germain Lussier writing at Slashfilm:

Andrew Stanton‘s rumored return to Pixar is now official. He’ll return with the sequel to Finding Nemo, called Finding Dory. The film will be released by Disney and Pixar on November 25, 2015. It takes place about a full year after the events of Finding Nemo and sees the return of Ellen DeGeneres as the title character. Albert Brooks is also expected to return, and we’ll see a slew of new characters including Dory’s family, who will be at the center of the story.

Not sure how I feel about this.

Says Ellen DeGeneres:

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said 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.”

Still not sure how I feel about this.

Says Andrew Stanton:

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.”

Ok so basically I feel like this is actually a really good set up for a sequel to Finding Nemo but at the same time I really wish Pixar would get back to putting out new stuff rather than sequels to old stuff. I kind of wonder if the schedule set by Disney is running them ragged or if they’re just running out of ideas.

Although I would love another Brad Bird directed Incredibles movie. That would indeed be incredible.

Still, more new stuff please Pixar.
