Deadline.com has confirmed that Andrew Stanton — the director of John Carter and WALL-E — is back and ready to release the sequel to his award-winning animation flick, Finding Nemo. That's right folks, Nemo is back!
Andrew has officially signed on to direct Finding Nemo 2 and is said to have a concept and storyline that Pixar and Disney love.
The 2003 movie grossed $867.9 million dollars worldwide and is the second-highest grossing film in Pixar's history behind Toy Story 3. Finding Nemo is currently the fifth highest-grossing animated film of all time, seated behind Toy Story 3, The Lion King, Shrek 2 and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
AND... It is set to be re-released in Disney Digital 3D on September 14!
“It’s exciting. Very exciting. Not as exciting as a sequel would be, but still...” Ellen DeGeneres, who voiced everyone's favorite short-term memory loss fish in the original flick, previously said about the re-release.
She must be pumped to return for the sequel! (We know we are excited about it!)
