I am so excited, because, today, Pixar announced that Ellen DeGeneres will star in the Nemo sequel “Finding Dory” out in 2015.
“Dory” will be Pixar’s second film ever to feature a female protagonist (the first was last year’s “Brave”) and its first film ever to put the female character’s name in the title. YAY!
Fox News reports:
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” DeGeneres 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.”
