The moment an entire generation of film fans has who have just kept swimming since 2003 is here, as Pixar announced today that the sequel to their smash hit "Finding Nemo" will be called "Finding Dory" and will hit theaters on November 25, 2015.
And star Ellen DeGeneres, who voiced Dory in the original movie, couldn't be happier.
"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," DeGeneres said in a press release. "I'm not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating 'Toy Story 16.' But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic.

Thanks to some serious sleuthing, DeGeneres had discovered that Seyfried and her "Les Miserables" co-stars had gone out for a night of karaoke while they were in Japan for a press tour. "So what?" you ask. Big whoop.
Well, dear friends, Seyfried admitted that she not only took her turn at the mic after a few rounds of sake, but that she was dressed as a frog at the time. Yes, we said she dressed as a frog. Naturally the talk show host happened to have a giant frog head handy so the 27-year-old starlet could reenact this special moment for a national TV audience. Get More »
This week: Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy that began with "Batman Begins" and earned Heath Ledger a posthumous Oscar for his performance in "The Dark Knight" concludes with "The Dark Knight Rises," which introduces the metal-masked Bane (Tom Hardy) and Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) to Gotham City.
Fans of "Arrested Development" know there is "always money in the banana stand," but now we know something else you could find there: Megan Fox.
On a recent episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show " the jaw-dropping "Transformers" star revealed that the only job outside the movie industry she ever held was at a smoothie stand during her formative years in Florida (and boy was she well formed). Get More »
