Ellen DeGeneres In Talks For Finding Nemo 2
Comedienne and chat show host Ellen DeGeneres is reportedly in talks with Disney Pixar about reprising her role as Dory in Finding Nemo 2.
Ellen lent her voice to the ditzy blue tang fish Dory, the sidekick of Nemo’s dad Marlin, in the 2003 popular animation film Finding Nemo. The character which added great comic value to the film due to it’s forgetful nature was said to be created by writer and co-director Andrew Stanton with Ellen especially in mind.
Now Ellen is in talks about returning for the animation sequel, as she revealed the news on her hit chat show The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week. Ellen has previously openly expressed her desire to return as Dory for another Finding Nemo film.
Stanton will be returning for the film, working alongside Victoria Strouse on the script. It is predicted that Finding Nemo 2 will be ready for a cinema release in 2016.
The original Finding Nemo is one of Disney’s most popular films, and is the highest grossing Pixar film ever made, bringing in over $868million Worldwide and receiving a well-deserved Oscar for Best Animation film.
The Finding Nemo sequel is likely to once again bring in huge audiences of all ages, who can enjoy the heart felt yet comic beauty of the underwater story. It is likely the film will be in 3D as a new 3D version of the first film is due to be released next month.
Disney Pixar have recently released sequels for several of their animation films including Monsters Inc, Toy Story and Cars.
