‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel Finds Official Title

Big things are happening for Ellen DeGeneres.

On Tuesday, the talk show host confirmed that the follow-up to 2003’s Finding Nemo will be dubbed Finding Dory — after her character’s name in the animated flick.

“It’s official,” DeGeneres, 55, wrote on her Instagram alongside a photo of the Pixar film’s official title card.

The comedienne also talked about the big news on her show, joking that she “was furious” when filmmaker Andrew Santon told her that Cars 2 would be released before Finding Dory.

“I really believed that one day it would happen. And today, I am proud to officially announce that Pixar is making a sequel to Finding Nemo,” she said.

“Here’s the good news: they say I’m one of the five top contenders to play the part of Dory,” she continued, jokingly. “No, I will be Dory again, which is the most fun in the world. Actually the entire sequel is about Dory.”

“So kids, let that be a lesson to you – Anything is possible if you’re patient and you beg hard enough on national television.”

However, fans are expected to wait just a little longer to experience the movie on the silver screen. According to DeGeneres, the film won’t hit theaters until 2015.

“I’m excited that it’s finally happening,” she said. “I read the script and it’s fantastic, it’s hilarious, it’s warm, it’s everything that you want it to be.”
