Albert Brooks / Finding Nemo

Director Andrew Stanton is returning to the familiar waters of animation after floundering in live action with the infamous 2012 flop John Carter, and he has already locked down Ellen DeGeneres to reprise her role of the forgetful fish Dory for Disney/Pixar's sequel Finding Nemo 2. Though Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive gave Albert Brooks the opportunity to stretch his acting muscles and play a villain, Brooks' voice work in the original Finding Nemo is actually his most famous performance of the past decade, so it's no surprise seeing Deadline report the actor has signed on to voice Nemo's father Marlin again in the sequel.

Story details are still scant for the underwater follow-up, but to me, a sequel to Finding Nemo seems a lot more appealing than Pixar's upcoming effort Monsters University. No word yet on whether original Nemo voice actor Alexander Gould is coming back to reprise his role, but at least we'll have Brooks back in action under a director with a chip on his shoulder and something to prove. Hopefully Stanton's passion - he came up with the story along with taking on the directing duties - shines through and makes this Pixar project more memorable than some of their more disappointing sequel attempts. Stay tuned for updates.

But they already found Nemo! Sheesh. I know this has been said many times before, but why is Pixar doing sequels to every other film of theirs, save for the only one that really warrants a sequel, "The Incredibles"?

Also, am I the only one who'd rather have Andrew Stanton work on a John Carter sequel?

Finding nemo is a beautiful movie, but the one that should get a sequel is The Incredibles 🙁
