'Finding Nemo 2' provokes ecstatic reaction on Twitter
News of a sequel to the animated underwater adventure is met by a wave of positive tweets
News of a sequel to 2003's Finding Nemo has received an overwhelmingly positive response on Twitter.
Yesterday, it was revealed that Pixar is making a follow-up to the underwater adventure, which grossed more than $878 million (£562 million) at the worldwide box office and won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
Finding Nemo 2 immediately became a trending topic on Twitter - despite having a projected release date of 2016. One user declared it the "best news I've heard all day", while another vowed: "When Finding Nemo 2 comes out those little kids better get outta my way. I will be first in line."
Meanwhile, Jersey Shore's Snooki posted a rather incredulous response to the animated sequel:
OH MY GOD. Finding Nemo 2?!?!?!— NiC0LE P0LiZZi (@snooki) July 18, 2012
Fortunately, Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator found it easier to express his feelings about the spate of animated movie sequels:
Finding Nemo 2. Toy Story 4. And Monsters Inc 2. Welcome back Childhood— Tyler the Creator (@TylerDa_Creator) July 17, 2012
However, another famous film fan reacted rather aggressively to the news:
Finding Nemo 2, Toy Story 4, Monsters Inc. 2. I WILL BE PUSHING LITTLE KIDS OUT OF THE WAY, SCREAMING, "CHILDHOOD IS MINE, MINE I TELL YOU."— TED (@MoreSarcasm) July 18, 2012
Meanwhile, news of Finding Nemo 2 also sparked renewed interest in a fourth Toy Story film from Pixar. Last year (2011), Tom Hanks told the BBC that a sequel was being "worked on", but no further information has emerged.
