Huge fans of the first film, Dolphin Tale (the touching story of the bond between a boy and a dolphin Winter, whose tail was lost in a crab trap), we simply can’t wait to watch Dolphin Tale 2 this half term.
The sequel continues the story of brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and rehabilitation – thanks to the invention of a ground breaking prosthetic tail — made her a symbol of perseverance to people the world over. I might have cried. A lot. My sons were captivated. There’s something so soothing and moving about dolphins. I know I always cry when we see them in real life too!
…Reuniting the entire main cast, led by Harry Connick, Jr., Ashley Judd, Nathan Gamble, Kris Kristofferson, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, Austin Stowell, Austin Highsmith and Morgan Freeman, it promises to be utterly captivating for you and your kids.
Several years have passed since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, rescued Winter, a young dolphin who lost her tail after being entangled in a crab trap.
With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, who developed a unique prosthetic tail for Winter, they saved her life against all odds. In turn, she helped save the Aquarium — as people came from far and wide to see the courageous dolphin first-hand, enabling CMA to greatly expand their mission to “rescue, rehabilitate and, when possible, release injured animals.
Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the elderly dolphin Panama, passes away, leaving Winter alone and grieving, unwilling to engage with anyone, even her best friend, Sawyer.
However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for CMA. The USDA warns Clay they will have to move Winter from the Aquarium because regulations require these social creatures to be paired. If they don’t find a female companion for her — one that she accepts — CMA will lose their beloved Winter.
But as time runs out, there may still be hope…
