Finding Dory

UPDATE: Plot line will be roughly as follows (h/t Buzzfeed):

In 'Finding Dory,' she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way."

According to Stanton, "Finding Dory" takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory's life.

Pixar, via Ellen Degeneres, has announced that the rumored Finding Nemo sequel is, indeed, moving ahead.  The title will be Finding Dory.  What I wonder is whether this will be a true sequel (Dory gets lost and needs to be rescued/found) or a prequel (the story of Dory) or a mid-quel (what was happening to Dory up until the moment she ran into Marlin).  It could potentially also be her finding out where she comes from/who she is.  I have a hard time imagining Pixar passing on the chance to have an entire family of Dories floating about, forgetting everything.

Either way, having just recently watched Toy Story 3 again, I'm content that Pixar can make some pretty darn good sequels.
