Pixar has taken the first wraps off Finding Nemo 2, now known as Finding Dory...

Since it was first revealed to be happening last year, news on Pixar's planned Finding Nemo 2 has been unsurprisingly scarce. Until now, anyway, as Disney has now put out an official announcement about the film, its title, and when to expect it.

Finding Nemo 2 then is now going by the official name of Finding Dory, and that promotes the character voiced by Ellen DeGeneres in the original film to top billing. DeGeneres will be returning to lend her vocal talents to the film.

The film is being directed by Andrew Stanton, who also made Finding Nemo, John Carter and Wall-E, and he said that "Finding Dory takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favourites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life".

Disney has also confirmed that Finding Dory is set for cinema release on November 25th 2015. More news on the film as we get it...
