Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has signed on for “Finding Nemo 2” in the much awaited sequal to Pixar’s popular “Finding Nemo”. DeGeneres will once again play the role of Dory. The role of Dory is perfect for DeGeneres as she is able to instill much of her hilarious delivery into the Regal Blue Tang fish. The L.A. Times announced the deal on Wednesday, reporting that Albert Brooks has also agreed to join the cast of the highest grossing Pixar film ever made.
The sequel is set for release in 2016, so fans will have to wait a while to see their favorite talk show host in action. Much of the talent behind the first movie will return for “Finding Nemo 2”, which made the decision to return an easy one for both Brooks and DeGeneres as both played characters that joined forces on the underwater adventure to find Nemo.
DeGeneres, who remains busy with her talk show and continues to be an inspirational role model for LGBT youth brings so much energy and humor as the voice of Dora, an unforgettable character that she brought to life.
The sequel will be fun for all ages and will likely be filmed in 3D. The original film also featured the voices of Elizabeth Perkins, Brad Garrett, Willem DaFoe, Allison Janney, and Georffrey Rush. Most are expected to return along with Director Andrew Stanton.
The original “Finding Nemo” movie grossed more than $920 million at the box office.
