LOS ANGELES: ‘Finding Dory’, a sequel to the 2003 Oscar-winning animation movie ‘Finding Nemo’ has been announced.
Remember the over-protective clownfish named Marlin (Albert Brooks) who, in an enthralling adventure to the far off “P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney”, searched for his abducted son Nemo (Alexander Gould)?
The sequel will focus on the little blue forgetful fish, Dory, voiced by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said Ellen DeGeneres in her Dory voice.
“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,” said the excited voice-over artist and host.
A year after the events of ‘Finding Nemo,’ ‘Finding Dory’ is set on the California coastline. The animated film will reprise many characters from the first film, such as the Tank Gang including Gill, Bloat, Bubbles, Peach, Gurgle, Jacques and Deb with of course the lead Marlin and Nemo.
Director Andrew Stanton of ‘Finding Nemo’ will direct ‘Finding Dory’ and Albert Brooks, who voiced Marlin in the first film will be heard in the sequel as well.
Disney and Pixar’s ‘Finding Dory’ will hit the screens on November 25, 2015.
