Finding Nemo gets a sequel!

Big news coming out of Disney Pixar today! It's official... Finding Nemo is getting a sequel titled Finding Dory.  Initially I thought this was an April Fools' prank but seeing that's now April 3rd in my part of the world, the news is starting to sink in.

Director Andrew Stanton, who definitely needs a win after the dismal failure of John Carter, is back to what he does best: computer animation.  He said of the new film and its lead character: “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.

This is a good move as Dory is practically everyone's favorite character and is voiced by everyone's favorite comedienne, Ellen DeGeneres who will of course be back as Dory.  "I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” DeGeneres said 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."

Suddenly I am warming up to an idea of a sequel to my favorite Pixar film because if anyone can manage to get herself lost, it's the lovable yet forgetful Blue Tang fish.  The film will release November 2015.
