Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of the blue tang fish from 2003's Finding Nemo, returns to the big screen in its sequel, Finding Dory.
Those will long memories will recall that DeGeneres was one of the most fun things about the classic underwater animated film.
DeGeneres had this to say about the return of the friendly-but-forgetful fish’s return, “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.”
Director Andrew Stanton will take the reigns and lead audiences back into the vast undersea world created in the original Academy Award winning film. According to Stanton, Finding Dory will take place about a year after the 2003 film, and will include appearances by Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. This time, instead of Australian waters, they’ll be swimming along the California coastline. The story will introduce a host of new characters, including a reunion with her loved ones that she hasn’t likely seen since the time she met Marlin and Nemo.
Finding Dory will dive into theaters November 25th, 2015.
