Disney to Release ‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel in 2015

April 2 (Bloomberg) -- Walt Disney Co.’s Pixar announced plans to release “Finding Dory,” a sequel to its 2003 animated blockbuster “Finding Nemo,” with Ellen DeGeneres returning as the voice of the forgetful blue tang fish.

The film is scheduled to reach theaters on Nov. 25, 2015, Burbank, California-based Disney said today in a statement. Director Andrew Stanton, who won a best animated picture Oscar for the original film, will return to helm the sequel.

The sequel, set partly on the California coast, will include returning characters, such as Nemo and his father Marlin, as well as new ones, Disney said.

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” DeGeneres, a talk show host, said in the statement. “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.”

“Finding Nemo” took in $921.7 million worldwide in ticket sales on a budget of $94 million, according to researcher BoxOfficeMojo.com.
