Half an hour ago, comedian and talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, posted the following photo on her Facebook page. The caption simply reads, “It’s official.”
The page shares this Plot Outline:
Director and Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton takes audiences back to the extraordinary underwater world created in the original film. “There is no Dory without Ellen,” said Stanton. “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.”
According to Stanton, “Finding Dory” takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. 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.
I am very excited about this! It will be interesting to see where the writers take us on an all new journey with everyone’s favorite regal blue tang fish with short-term memory loss. What are your initial thoughts?
