Disney Pixar announced today that Finding Nemo 2 will be called Finding Dory and will be released November 2015.

Finding Dory is not an April Fools joke! The following title art was released:

Disney Finding Nemo 2 Finding Dory

Ellen DeGeneres had been in talks for Finding Nemo 2 as far back as August, and the project was confirmed by director Andrew Stanton in September. Albert Brooks, who voiced Nemo’s dad Marlin, is on board too.

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said DeGeneres in a press release issued by Disney. “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.”

Finding Nemo and Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton added: “There is no Dory without Ellen. She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world—not to mention our team here at Pixar. One thing we couldn’t stop thinking about was why she was all alone in the ocean on the day she met Marlin. In ‘Finding Dory,’ she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way.”

Disney and Stanton say that Finding Dory takes place a year after the first film, and all your favorite characters are returning. “Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.”

Finding Dory opens in theaters November 25, 2015. Pixar’s next film to be released is the Monsters, Inc. prequel Monsters University this June. In between Monsters and Dory they will release two original films: The Good Dinosaur in May 2014 and Inside Out in June 2015.

UPDATE: Watch Ellen talk about Finding Dory on her show today…

      Seriously? I always assumed everyone saw Finding Nemo. I remember going to see it in the cinema when I was about 12 or so.

      • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

        Nope. Just never looked interesting enough for me.

          You my friend, did not have an awesome childhood.

          • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

            I’m 20. And Harry Potter was my childhood. Pretty good I think.

          • Kaiya

            So you were ten when it came out. I’m sorry, I thought that was still apart of your childhood.

          • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

            Not really. Harry Potter and other movies. Finding Nemo doesn’t seem that great of a movie. I’ve asked people about it and they say meh.

  • ravenclaw1991

    WHAAAAT???? Finding Dori D: Well, it makes sense, she is absent minded. She could easily get lost and need to be found.

    • Plat

      The title of the movie actually has a deeper meaning. Dory wont get lost, but they will be trying to reunite her with her family. ‘Finding Dory’ is in a sense Dory finding out who she is, who she was, and the importance of her family.

  • findingDORY

    For gods sake it says it in the image and you still get it wrong. DORY not DORI, where do you get these people??

    • http://www.hypable.com/ Andrew Sims

      Calm your tits, Dori!

  • http://twitter.com/MusicandHouse J

    You realize the poster spells it Dory and you guys spelled it Dori in your post…

    • ravenclaw1991

      I totally spelled it wrong myself. But that’s because I recently read The Hobbit and I had the Dwarves’ names Dori, Nori, and Ori stuck in my head.

  • Stagegirl12

    *Dory not Dori :)

    Wow these comments..
    awfully brutal for someone who is just trying to get new information out…relax im sure it will be fixed.

  • Elphaba Thropp

    Okay Disney, I’m trusting you. I am trusting that you and pixar will make a GOOD sequel.

    That being said, I wonder if Dory is going to find her family?

      • Elphaba Thropp

        I have seen them, that’s why I’m trusting Disney/Pixar! Disney on it’s own, I don’t trust as much with sequels.

      • Cody

        Have you seen Cars 2?

        • http://twitter.com/BilliamSays Bill Anderson

          no because Cars was terrible to begin with.

        • http://www.facebook.com/lng101010 Linh Nguyën

          I have. Kinda sucked compared to Cars. There’s only so much you can take of Larry the FiOS Guy.

    • http://twitter.com/celestialrdmoon -no name-

      maybe Dory’s lost because of her short term memory loss and marlin’s gonna find her since they’re friends…..idk xD

        idk, i don’t want the plot to be the same as Finding Nemo

  • fruttivendolo

    I just kept hoping this movie would go away and die a silent death in production. Since it has a name now, I guess that’s not the case. Urgh.

    I love the synopsis about learning about the meaning of family! Counting down the days now!

  • http://twitter.com/eiVega eiVega

    They’re going to swim from Australia to California? That’s a long journey just flying! I wonder if it’s going to be hard to say good-bye to Marlin and Nemo when she finds her real family or if they are going to somehow all work it out and live together or she has to pick sides or have a long-distance relationship? I hope Nemo’s voice hasn’t changed too much if the movie is only suppose to take place a year later. I’m excited and trust they will do a good job. I wasn’t sure how they would approach a sequel but this seems like a smart direction to take it without being too redundant.

  • Lotte

    Of course the second movie is about Dory. How the heck did I not think of it? It is so obvious! It is simply genius Soooo excited!!!

    So excited for this I can’t even explain

  • georgina Phelps

    hold on a sec, at the end of the Ellen video she said that everyone in the studio will go home with a copy of Finding Nemo on DVD and blu-ray, I didn’t think that was a real thing that happened. I thought that just happened in movies and stuff.

    • Plat

      Apparently you don’t watch talk shows then. xD She always gives out gifts.

      • georgina Phelps

        I’ve never watched Ellen before in my life. they’re done differently over in America I guess.

  • Barbara

    Pixar has a good track record with sequels, so I have no doubt that Finding Dory will be good. (Still waiting for a sequel to The Incredibles, though.)

  • daff

    hahaha toy story 16 XD i love ellen she is hilarious!!

  • Vajackster

    Fuck Pixar. They were overrated before (with a few exceptions) because of the novelty of CGI animation, and now all their movies are shit. They’ve lost any creativity, so now all their movies are either half-ass sequels or half-ass Disney movie knock-offs (Brave. That movie sucked ass). If you’re incapable of putting out a good movie, then don’t even fucking try.

  • nancy

    why on earth did this take so dang long! 2nd nemo should’ve been out TEN YRS. AGO. great movie and it ticks me off it took this (*(^*^&%& long for the sequel.
