(Huffington Post)- Dory is swimming her way back to the box office.

Disney and Pixar announced Tuesday that "Finding Nemo" is getting a sequel with the upcoming release of "Finding Dory."

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said Ellen DeGeneres, who voices Dory, in a statement. “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.”

"Finding Dory" is reportedly set on the California coastline, one year after "Finding Nemo." The animated flick will include many of the characters from the first film, such as Marlin, the Tank Gang, and of course, Nemo.

The sequel was first reported by Deadline.com in July of 2012. Andrew Stanton will direct "Finding Dory," with Albert Brooks, who voiced Marlin in the first film, returning as well.

"Finding Nemo" was a major success for Disney and Pixar. Released in 2003, "Finding Nemo" reached a total worldwide gross of $921.7 million, and took home the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

"Finding Dory" will hit theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.
