‘Finding Dory’ to be Pixar’s first film titled for female star

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.”


It better be a lot more about Dory and YES, it has been a long time waiting. I’m a little worried because Dory wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but she was funny, compassionate, loyal, and brave.
Pixar, please make sure Dory is the real protagonist of this film. That means Dory is the one who ACTS and the movie is centered on her quest. Don’t forget, heroes are the ones who make choices, take risks, and go through a transition.
It would be great if you would throw some more female characters in the movie, even making half of them female. Don’t let Dory be a Minority Feisty.
Thank you for making “Dory,” and I am looking forward to 2015!
