Finding Dory, the upcoming and newly-announced sequel to Finding Nemo, was announced today for a 2015 release — and to hear Twitter tell it, you’d think we have a new pope again.
The hullabaloo over Finding Dory even though it’s well over two years away was intense, and nowhere was as excited as Twitter for the Nemo followup.
And while the titular characters of Finding Nemo were central to the plot obviously, the scatterbrained but positive-leaning (“just keep swimming!”) Dory (voiced by America’s sweetheart Ellen DeGeneres) was definitely the most beloved out of the film.
Over on the microblogging site, Nemo fans reacted with feverish enthusiasm to the Finding Dory news, reacting in all manner of “squee” to the sequel buzz:
I apologize in advance for knocking your child over in November 2015 to get in the movie theater to watch ‘Finding Dory’
