Ellen DeGeneres Gets Wet Once More In Finding Dory! See Her Announcement HERE!

For nearly a decade Ellen DeGeneres used every pulpit at her disposal in a seemingly futile effort to talk the world into a Finding Nemo sequel!

She never needed to convince us, obvi; we think Nemo is one of Pixar's very best!!

All her perseverance must've finally paid off because this morning the TV host was able to take a victory lap on her show!

As we told you already, there WILL be a sequel and Ellen will return to voice the supporting lead character!!

Ch-ch-check out Ellen's joy-filled Finding Dory announcement (above)!

Ahhh, she is sooooo happy!! And can you blame her?!

Not since Jonas Salk cured polio has there been such awesome news to break!!

Finding Dory swims its way into theaters (and hearts) in 2015!!
