Finding Dory, a sequel to the 2003 Oscar-winning animation movie Finding Nemo, will be ready to hit the screens in 2015.

The movie will focus on the little blue fish, voiced by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," DeGeneres said in a 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. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It's got a lot of heart, it's really funny, and the best part is - it's got a lot more Dory," he added.

Along with three Toy Story films and two Cars instalments, Finding Dory is the latest in Pixar's long line of sequels. The company is also releasing a prequel to Monster Inc., titled Monster's University, soon.
