Finding Nemo 2 given the go-ahead

A sequel to Pixar's classic animation Finding Nemo is gathering momentum.

Andrew Stanton, who directed the original 2003 feature, will be directing the sequel to the nautical adventure film.

Although Stanton's most recent project, John Carter, was disappointing at the box office, Finding Nemo is Pixar's second-highest-grossing film, behind Toy Story 3.

The likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks and Willem Dafoe provided voice work for the original movie, which won the Academy Award for Best Animated Film.

Hands up who can't wait to see Finding Nemo 2?!
