June 9 (Reuters) - - A beaming Ellen DeGeneres arrived for the Hollywood premiere of Disney Pixar's "Finding Dory" on Wednesday, a film speculated over for 13 years and which she thought would never be made.

The U.S. talk show host and comedian reprises her role as Dory, an absent-minded and chatty blue tang fish in the sequel to the Oscar-winning animated 2003 film "Finding Nemo".

"I'm just excited that it is finally here because I never thought it would happen. Honestly, it was a joke that I was talking about it so much that I kind of gave up," DeGeneres said of the film which opens in theaters on June 17.
