Just keep swimming, Ellen!

Ellen DeGeneres is in talks to reprise her role as Dory in the Disney-Pixar Finding Nemo sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the 2003 animated blockbuster, DeGeneres voiced Dory, a Pacific Regal Blue Tang who suffered from short-term memory loss. The original storyline follows the whirlwind journey of Marlin (Albert Brooks), a father clown fish who travels the ocean in search of his missing son, Nemo (Alexander Gould).

And a follow-up to the fish tale seems to be right up DeGeneres' alley.

The talk show host has frequently touched on her desire to see a Finding Nemo sequel come to fruition.

Writer-director Andrew Stanton, who wrote and co-directed Nemo, is set to return for the second film. Victoria Strouse is penning the script and Lindsey Collins is producing. A 2016 release date is projected.

The original, which won an Oscar for best animated feature, has raked in $868 million to date worldwide and set various box office records when it opened in 2003.

Finding Nemo will return to the silver screen with a 3D re-release on September 14th. But don't hold your breath for the sequel — it's expected to be released in 2016.
