Ellen DeGeneres will reprise her role as the voice of Dory in the follow-up film,
which is slated for a Nov. 25, 2015 release.
The film will take place about a year after the first film, and will welcome a host of new characters alongside fan favorites such as Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang.
"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," says 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."
