Ellen Finds Her Way to a ‘Nemo’ Sequel

It took 10 years, but it looks like Ellen DeGeneres has finally reeled in a sequel to the hit movie Finding Nemo. The comedian has been known to use her daytime talk show, which debuted the same year as Nemo, as something of a platform to push for a Finding Nemo 2 for years.

This week she announced that not only had her wish for a sequel been granted by Disney’s Pixar, but that the character she voices, Dory, would be the star of the show!

"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," she said. "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."
