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."

The new movie will focus on why the friendly and forgetful fish was on her own when Nemo’s dad, Marlin, met her.

But DeGeneres still has more waiting to do, as Finding Dory won’t hit theaters until November 2015.
