Half an hour ago, comedian and talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, posted the following photo on her Facebook page. The caption simply reads, “It’s official.”
A quick search provided the official Facebook page for the upcoming sequel to Disney-Pixar’s 2003 hit Finding Nemo.
The page shares this Plot Outline:
Director and Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton takes audiences back to the extraordinary underwater world created in the original film. “There is no Dory without Ellen,” said Stanton. “She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world—not to mention our team here at Pixar. 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.”
According to Stanton, “Finding Dory” takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites 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.
I am very excited about this! It will be interesting to see where the writers take us on an all new journey with everyone’s favorite regal blue tang fish with short-term memory loss. What are your initial thoughts?

MUAH! When the whole room was lit up!
Animator’s Palate was my favorite restaurant when we took our cruise on the Disney Wonder. Watching the room change colors during our dinner was truly magical, and you could certainly tell Disney spared no expense when designing the entire experience.
Today, Disney Cruise Line’s Jonathan Frontado, posted about the NEW Animator’s Palate that will be on the Disney Dream:
We are getting ready to present a completely re-imagined version of our signature restaurant. The minute you walk into Animator’s Palate, you know you’re in for a treat –- it will feel like you’ve entered a classic animation studio, filled with character maquettes, paint brushes, colored pencils and other tools of the trade. Throughout the restaurant are sketches from the Disney-Pixar film “Finding Nemo.”
