We first reported on the sequel back in June, when director Andrew Stanton signed on to take the helm. Ellen DeGeneres entered talks to return as the forgetful fish Dory in November. The deal has since been finalized. It isn't known if Alexander Gould will be back as Nemo.
Victoria Strouse (Little Fockers) wrote the screenplay, with Lindsey Collins producing. It isn't known when production will begin. Disney is aiming for a 2016 release.
