Finding Nemo is generally regarded as one of Pixar's finest animated films. With that in mind, the question naturally arises: why Cars got a sequel before Nemo?
That question is now irrelevant, as Pixar has officially announced the sequel to Finding Nemo, titled Finding Dory. The movie will focus on Dory, the clumsy Pacific regal blue tang sidekick in Finding Nemo. Finding Dory will be directed by Andrew Stanton, who directed Finding Nemo as well as Pixar's WALL-E. According to the new Finding Dory Facebook page, the movie will be released in November 2015.
Though the Nemo sequel has been rumored for some time, the official announcement came, fittingly, from the voice of Dory herself. Ellen DeGeneres made the announcement this week on The Ellen DeGeneres show.
