Finding Dory” is set as the title of Pixar Animation Studios’ “Finding Nemo” sequel that Andrew Stanton is returning to direct.

Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres are also back to voice the characters of Marlin and Dory.

Disney will release the toon Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 25, 2015.

Set in part on the California coastline, film takes place a year after the original and centers around Dory, the Blue Tang fish that helped Nemo find his way home. Nemo and the Tank Gang of fish, along with new characters, will be featured in the sequel.

Stanton and DeGeneres had already signed on to the pic, which Pixar has been developing. “Finding Nemo” won the 2003 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and earned $922 million at the worldwide box office. Dory is Disney’s most “liked” character on Facebook, with over 24 million “likes”.

“There is no Dory without Ellen,” Stanton said in a statement. “One thing we couldn’t stop thinking about was why she was all alone in the ocean on the day she met Marlin. In ‘Finding Dory,’ she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way.”
