Ellen DeGeneres is going fishing again with a sequel to the animated blockbuster Finding Nemo.

Disney and its Pixar Animation unit announced that Ellen will reprise her Nemo voice role for Finding Dory. The sequel is due out on November 25, 2015, and will be directed by Andrew Stanton, who also made Finding Nemo.

"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," Ellen said. "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."

The new film picks up about a year after the action of Finding Nemo, with Ellen's forgetful fish Dory on her own adventure to reunite with loved ones.

According to Disney, the film will feature new characters along with familiar ones, including Nemo and his dad, Marlin, who was voiced by Albert Brooks. There is no word yet from Disney on whether Brooks will reprise his voice role.

Finding Nemo was released in 2003 and took in 921 million dollars (£610 million) worldwide. The movie was the first Pixar production to win the Academy Award for best animated feature after the category was added in 2001. Pixar films have gone on to dominate, winning the Oscar seven years out of 12.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
