Ellen DeGeneres, who voiced the beloved blue tang with short-term memory loss in Pixar’s 2003 blockbuster Finding Nemo, has been on a tireless campaign for the studio to make a sequel ever since.
On Friday at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, Disney Creative Chief Officer John Lasseter made a point of showing a reel of compiled clips of DeGeneres’s constant pleas. He then joked that he relented and gave in to the pressure. “OK, OK, OK,” he said. “We are in production on Finding Dory.”
