Pixar announces Finding Dory to hit theaters in 2015

Disney/Pixar has announced it will create a sequel to Finding Nemo called Finding Dory for a November 2015 release. Finding Dory will once again star Ellen DeGeneres.

According to the LA Times, the story will set off the California coast about a year after the Finding Nemo story.

If you ask me, Dory stole the show in Nemo. Creating a story around this slightly amnesiac character should be rich with possibilities.

I was so hoping this was an April Fools Day gag.

The movie Memento came to mind… At least, I think it did :)

“will create”? Does this mean they haven’t started yet but it’ll come out in 2 1/2 years? Isn’t that a quick-turnaround for a Pixar film? Does it mean it’ll be lesser in quality?

@Jim Not always, Toy Story 2 was turned around in less than a year. If they’ve made the announcement, it means they’ve been working on it for some time (probably since Stanton rolled off John Carter).

I still need to finish Nemo. I think I haven’t watched the last half.

I assume he was found, explaining the word “Finding” in the title. Boy, they kind of gave it away right from the get-go, huh?

Finding Nemo was the highest-grossing Pixar movie for a while though it’s probably been surpassed by Toy Story 3 and the Cars flicks…my son watched it many times when he was younger. Dory was his favorite character. I enjoyed the Sharks’ 12-step meeting and the cast of characters occupying the fish tank, but after repeated viewings, hearing Albert Brooks screaming ‘NEMO’ over & over was supremely irritating.
