Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of Dory in Finding Nemo has been longing for a sequel to the 2003 Pixar animated film for years. And really who could blame her. I recently had the urge to re-watch the movie not too long ago and I remembered why I loved it so much.
Finding Nemo is such a great story and the characters are so fun to watch, especially Dory who suffers from short-term memory loss but is still able to be a vital part in finding Marlyn's son Nemo. Granted she can never remember Nemo's name, calling him things like, Fabio, Harpo and Elmo instead, but she remembers where they can find him and urges Nemo's dad to "just keep swimming, just keep swimming."
I've always wondered how a sequel would work. They can't lose Nemo again, that wouldn't bring anything more to the story. But Pixar being the amazing story tellers that they are found a way to keep part of the theme from the first movie into their upcoming sequel while still being able to create something new and I'm sure, worthwhile with Finding Dory which is set to come out November 2015. Pixar has announced that the movie will take place a year after Finding Nemo and is set on the California coast.
No other plot points have been revealed but Ellen has already received the script and is very happy with it, "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."
I'm really excited for this and I really hope Dory is able to demonstrate a bit of her infamous whale speech.
