In a Disney press release, Ellen said."I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time."

The funny woman added, "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."

She also posted artwork for the new movie, on her Instagram page.
