We kept swimming and we made it!!!
After years of speculation and suspense, Ellen DeGeneres has been CONFIRMED to reprise her lovable role as the forgetful Dory in Finding Nemo 2!
And joining her is original Marlin voice — Albert Brooks!
While we knew Ellen had been in talks, the real deal lights our skies like the fireworks from Anaheim!
It's speculated that Albert held out for a bigger paycheck after scoring such an accomplishing run of work since the original came out in 2003. And clearly he got it!
As we previously reported, Nemo veteran Andrew Stanton will return to direct the feature, painting the portrait of magic and joy for Disney*Pixar lovers everywhere!!
The only downside?? We won't see it ’til 2016…
But hey! We love quality work, so take your time!!!
