Ellen Degeneres (my BFF) Shares AWESOME News #FindingDory

Where is 42 Wallaby Way exactly??  According to Ellen there isn’t one.  Disappointed?  I was too, BUT there is something to ease our disappointment…..

Finding Dory

AHHHHHHH!!!!! Did someone just say FINDING DORY???  To say I am excited is an understatement, I am ECSTATIC (is that enough caps in a short amount of time fo you).   I adored Finding Nemo and had hoped there would be a sequel, and to find out it centers around my favorite character, Dory, is just icing on the happy cake.

I absolutely adore Ellen Degeneres, she is one of my favorite celebrities.  She is funny (like me), she loves to dance (like me), she appreciates a good rap (which I can do)…okay so I made that last part up, but I venture to say she would appreciate my rapping skills (hmm I should email her about that).  However, she is really excited about this movie (hey, like me) and here is how she shared the new with audiences..

Check out the full press release about the 2015 release of Finding Dory:

Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” to Dive into Theaters November 25, 2015

Ellen DeGeneres, the Voice of the Beloved Blue Tang Fish in 2003’s “Finding Nemo,” Shares Plans for the All-New Big-Screen Adventure

When Dory said “just keep swimming” in 2003’s Oscar®-winning film “Finding Nemo,” she could not have imagined what was in store for her (not that she could remember). Ellen DeGeneres, voice of the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, revealed details today about Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory”—an all-new big-screen adventure diving into theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said DeGeneres. “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.”

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.

“Finding Nemo” won the 2003 Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature; the film was nominated for three additional Oscars® (Best Writing, Original Screenplay; Best Music, Original Score; Best Sound Editing). It was also nominated for a Golden Globe® Award for Best Motion Picture–Comedy or Musical. In 2008, the American Film Institute named “Finding Nemo” among the top 10 greatest animated films ever made. At the time of its release, “Finding Nemo” was the highest grossing G-rated movie of all time. It’s currently the fourth highest grossing animated film worldwide. The film has more than 16 million Likes on Facebook, and Dory—with more than 24 million—is the most Liked individual character from a Disney or Disney•Pixar film.

DeGeneres’ distinctive comic voice has resonated with audiences from her first stand-up comedy appearances through her work today on television, in film and in the literary world. Her syndicated talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” is in its 10th season and has earned 38 Daytime Emmy® Awards. DeGeneres has won 12 People’s Choice Awards and the Teen Choice Award for Choice Comedian for three consecutive years. Additionally, her show won two Genesis Awards and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Talk Show Episode. For her unforgettable turn as Dory, DeGeneres was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.

I don’t know about you but I am going to “Just Keep Swimming” until November 2015 gets here…I am ready to hit the midnight premiere for this one (please say there will be a midnight premiere). You may even find a video or two, in the future, of me swimming my way there. That’s all I will say for now!  Oh, go on and like Finding Dory on facebook, you know you want to!

Are you as excited as I am about Finding Dory???
