Ellen DeGeneres won the hearts of kids and adults in her first animated stint in 2003’s Finding Nemo as Dory, the hilarious fish with short-term memory loss who reminded us all to “just keep swimming.” The fact that she started her talk show later that year was no surprise, considering she had officially become a household name.
And now, the Emmy Award winner will be lending her voice to a new Warner Bros. animated feature called Dog Show. DeGeneres will voice the film’s main character, a stray dog, who, along with her other stray dog pals, “shake[s] up the purebred world of a Westminster-like dog show.”
There aren’t many other details about the film just yet. Will an animated Iggy make an appearance?
And most importantly, what kind of dog will Ellen be? I see her as some sort of small golden terrier mix with a neatly tied, crisp bandana around her neck. She may be a stray, but she’ll be classy.
Do you think you’ll see if Ellen can top her voiceover work as Dory with Dog Show?
