Finding Nemo Sequel Announced!

Finding Dory in 2015

A Finding Nemo sequel is the last news you Maniacs want to read about. Perhaps if we support the other projects and scream loud enough, Pixar will get the idea that an Incredibles sequel is what we really desire. In the meantime, here is the official press announcement for Finding Dory

Official Press Announcement: When Dory said “just keep swimming” in 2003’s Oscar®-winning film “Finding Nemo,” she could not have imagined what was in store for her (not that she could remember). Ellen DeGeneres, voice of the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, revealed details today about Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory”—an all-new big-screen adventure diving into theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said DeGeneres. “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.”

Director and Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton takes audiences back to the extraordinary underwater world created in the original film. “There is no Dory without Ellen,” said Stanton. “She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world—not to mention our team here at Pixar. 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.”

According to Stanton, “Finding Dory” takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.

Finding Nemo” won the 2003 Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature; the film was nominated for three additional Oscars® (Best Writing, Original Screenplay; Best Music, Original Score; Best Sound Editing). It was also nominated for a Golden Globe® Award for Best Motion Picture–Comedy or Musical. In 2008, the American Film Institute named “Finding Nemo” among the top 10 greatest animated films ever made. At the time of its release, “Finding Nemo” was the highest grossing G-rated movie of all time. It’s currently the fourth highest grossing animated film worldwide. The film has more than 16 million Likes on Facebook, and Dory—with more than 24 million—is the most Liked individual character from a Disney or Disney•Pixar film.

DeGeneres’ distinctive comic voice has resonated with audiences from her first stand-up comedy appearances through her work today on television, in film and in the literary world. Her syndicated talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” is in its 10th season and has earned 38 Daytime Emmy® Awards. DeGeneres has won 12 People’s Choice Awards and the Teen Choice Award for Choice Comedian for three consecutive years. Additionally, her show won two Genesis Awards and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Talk Show Episode. For her unforgettable turn as Dory, DeGeneres was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.

 Finding Dory is not the last thing I want to read about.  Nemo was cool so hoping the sequel is more Toy Story 2 than Cars 2.

OH MY GOD THAT IS AMAZING. Oh not this I was looking at Lady Jaye's jogging outfit in Gi Joe.

Seriously, when the FUCK are we getting Incredibles 2? Seriously? This is bullshit.

Laz, I am so with you but hanso has a point at least its not Planes.

Agree with all above, especially the Lady Jaye part.

Bryzarro 4/3/2013 5:50:39 AM

 I agree.  Would rather see Incredibles 2 over this.  And Nemo to me was a 1 trick pony.  This is bad.....Cars 2 bad.

Everyone including myself  is chomping at the bit for an Incredibles sequel but they won't do it until they have a great story to work from.  I'd rather them take their time and make sure it's fantastic.

 With Finding Nemo on loop play for my three year old I am overjoyed that there will be new content to watch 30 times over.

 The only thing Finding Nemo was good for, was for a drinking game.  The number of times Nemo's dad yells "Nemo", numbing.
