Fans of Disney Pixar’s 2003 animated favorite “Finding Nemo” have been fervently begging for a sequel for a decade now. Their wishes were finally fulfilled on Tuesday when Pixar announced that a follow-up film, “Finding Dory,” will hit theaters in November 2015. Not many details have been confirmed yet but we do know that this film centers on Dory, the beloved blue tang fish whose short-term memory loss brought many laughs in the first film.           

Ellen DeGeneres announced via Twitter that she would reprise her role as Dory. She expressed a strong enthusiasm about returning to the film, stating, “The script is fantastic. It has everything I loved about the first one: a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is it’s got a lot more Dory.” Unfortunately for Alexander Gould, the original voice of actor of Nemo, he will be forced to hand over his role to a new voice actor as the now 17-year-old’s voice is too deep for Nemo.           

According to the Los Angeles Times, “Finding Dory” is set a year after the events of the first film and part of the film takes place along the California coast. “Finding Nemo” characters Marlin and Nemo will return for the sequel. There is not much more plot information known at this time, leaving “Nemo” fans to speculate for themselves how the storyline will continue.
