DOLPHIN TALE 2
RATED PG, Coming out SEPTEMBER 12th
If you loved “Dolphin Tale,” riding a wave into theaters this month is the sequel, “Dolphin Tale 2.” The movie continues the true story of the brave dolphin Winter and the bond she shares with her human friends Sawyer and Hazel. The team at Clearwater Marine Hospital is in need of finding a pool mate for Winter, or they risk losing her to another aquarium. This is when a new baby dolphin, named Hope, is rescued and comes into their lives. This film tells Hope’s uplifting story. And if you’re a big fan of the incredibly talented and funny Harry Connick Jr. from “American Idol,” he stars as marine biologist Dr. Clay Haskett. Will the team find a way to keep Winter?
The movie stars Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, Bethany Hamilton, Kris Kristofferson and Harry Connick Jr.

And before you see “Dolphin Tale 2,” you can check out the original “Dolphin Tale” (PG) from 2011 on DVD. This is where we first learned the true story of a boy named Sawyer and an injured dolphin named Winter. Winter is rescued, but she loses her tail and has no chance of survival until a prosthetic, or man-made, tail is created for her. It’s an unbelievably inspiring tale about a truly remarkable animal!
RATED PG, Coming out SEPTEMBER 26th
