Alert your kids: 'Finding Nemo' is finally getting a sequel!

Parents, get ready to hit the movies with your kids because the beloved animated film, Finding Nemo, is FINALLY getting a sequel! Director Andrew Stanton recently confirmed that he will return to work on the follow-up to the favored Pixar movie… and I have to confess, I am SUPER excited.


I know that at 22, I am technically not part of their target audience, but I am not ashamed to admit that I totally love animated movies. And Finding Nemo is one of my all-time favorites! Ever since the original film became a smash hit in 2003 (earning over $867 million worldwide), I have been eagerly anticipating the announcement of a sequel and now, almost a decade later, I'm thrilled that it's finally happening.

Though there's been no word yet on whether Albert Brooks and Ellen Degeneres will return to voice their loveable characters Marlin and Dory, I hope that after all this time, the actors will be willing to reprise their roles and complete the story. Even if they don't, I'm sure the sequel will be just as hilarious and adorable as the first (seriously, did anyone NOT love that movie?) and I can't wait to learn what the plot is about. Will Nemo have kids of his own now?!  Will Dory have ever get her memory back? So many possibilities!

And this might not be the only Pixar classic that's making a comeback--rumors are flying about the possibility of a Toy Story 4, despite the fact that Toy Story 3 was originally thought to be the last in the franchise. How awesome would that be?

In any case, Finding Nemo 2 will reportedly be released in theaters first, along with Cars 2 and the prequel to Monsters Inc. I think it's safe to say I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the movie theatres!
