Finding Dory, the sequel to one of our Disney favorites, Finding Nemo, will be released in theaters November 25, 2015.
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said Ellen DeGeneres the voice of Dory in Finding Nemo. “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.”
Disney has said that in the sequel that will take place about one year after the first film, Dory will be reunited with her loved ones, learning important lessons about the meaning of family along the way. Old characters, such as Marlin, Nemo and the Tang Gang, will be brought back along side some great new characters.
