Movie News: Finding Nemo Sequel Gets New Name, Release Date

April 3, 2013

We’ve known for some time that a sequel to Disney Pixar’s popular undersea adventure, Finding Nemo, was in the works but further details were scarce.

That all changed this morning when the company revealed that their new fish tale would not be titled Finding Nemo 2, but Finding Dory.

Dory, a popular side character in the 2003 original played by Ellen DeGeneres, will be, as the title implies, front and center this time around. DeGeneres is confirmed to return as the forgetful blue tang fish.

The film will see the return of director Andrew Stanton and Albert Brooks as Nemo’s father, Marlin. No other cast members have been named.

Finding Dory will be in theaters November 15, 2015.
