"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," DeGeneres said in a statement Tuesday, coinciding with an Instagram and Facebook post.
“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,” she added. 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.”
Andrew Stanton will be directing the sequel and it will take place about 1 year after the original left off. All the original characters will be reprising their roles so no need to worry there!
I don’t exactly know how to feel about this. But this is how I think of it, when I first heard there will be a Monsters prequel, I was shocked, I thought how could they ever do the film without Boo, she was so perfect! Then I saw how it was really turning out and I’m now ecstatic to see Monsters University. It’s comforting hearing that Ellen is openly praising the script.
Finding Dory will hit theaters November 25th, 2015!
