Director Andrew Stanton, Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres are returning for Finding Dory, the sequel to Pixar‘s 2003 pic that has been long in the works. Disney has set a November 25, 2015 release date for the movie, which will take place about a year after the original film and focus on Dory (DeGeneres), the blue tang fish who helped Nemo find his way home in the first pic. Finding Nemo won the Best Animated Feature Oscar and is now fourth-highest-grossing animated film worldwide. Stanton returned to the fold in July, and DeGeneres signed on soon after. “There is no Dory without Ellen,” Stanton said in the release today announcing the date. “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.”
