Disney Pixar have just made a whole load of people really, really happy – by confirming that there will be a sequel to Finding Nemo. HOO-FREAKIN-RAY!
Andrew Stanton, the director of the original fish-based film, has signed up to direct - with Deadline reporting that Pixar and Disney executives are ‘thrilled’ with his concept for the follow-up movie, which is due for release in 2015.
No word yet on whether Ellen Degeneres will return to her role as forgetful Dory ("there is no eating fish tonight, there is no eating fish tonight, you on a diet, YOU ON A DIET") but seeing as the first film grossed $554 MILLION at the box office, we can’t imagine she’d say no.
We’re well excited about the sequel news, but can’t help but wonder what kind of storyline we can expect to see this time round. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a few suggestions. Feel free to add your own in the comment section at the bottom of the page!
- ‘Finding Nemo: Reloaded’ which is exactly the same as the first film, except they all carry around MASSIVE water pistols, and wear vests like Bruce Willis. C'mon, what could be funnier than a fish in a vest?
- Nemo goes away to ‘find himself’ and we watch him meditate under a single strand of seaweed for the entire film.
- Loosley based on the original script, we follow the life of that weird fish with the lightbulb on his head. He’s actually a sensitive little soul.
- Nemo has children of his own, ALL of whom go missing. He finds them all - apart from the tinest, cutest one, who drifts around the sea, lonely forever more. SORRY THAT WAS HORRIBLE. We made ourselves feel upset.
What do you think, are you excited?
