When I saw Ellen tweet this morning, I thought that it was a belated April Fool’s joke.

I can barely contain my excitement.
UPDATE: Ellen spoke more about the film in a press release.
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” DeGeneres said in a release. “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.”
Pixar said the film sequel is “set in part along the California coastline” and, along with several returning favorites, “welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.”
