The 2003 Oscar-winning animated film "Finding Nemo" will have a sequel titled "Finding Dory," which is slated for a November 25, 2015 release.
Talk show host and comedienne Ellen DeGeneres, who is the voice behind the little blue fish Dory, confirmed the sequel, which was also announced by film studio Disney-Pixar.
"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," said Ellen in a release. "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."
Andrew Stanton, who co-directed 2003's "Finding Nemo" with Lee Unkrich, said the film will center on Dory reuniting with her "loved ones," much like the family-focused plot of "Nemo."
The film will take place roughly a year after the events of the first film. Many favorites, including Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others, will return. It will be set in part along the California coast.
