Dolphin Tale 2 Official Trailer



The Inspiring True Story of Winter

Have you seen Dolphin Tale?  Well, if not, you must see it first to get an idea of Winter, the amazing and inspiring dolphin; young Sawyer, her loyal and trusted friend, companion and trainer; and Hazel, the daughter of the aquarium’s owner.  Through adversary, they fought to save the aquarium, save Winter, and create the most amazing prosthetic tale for a dolphin the world has ever seen.

Sawyer is a young boy, who in 2011 after falling behind in school is forced to go to summer school; and his mother who was critical in inspiring his dreams.  What they learn quickly is that prepositions are propositions, but interests inspire a true lifetime love of learning.  It’s at a small aquarium where he finds something that he can dig his nose into and love.

The star-studded cast includes Harry Connick, Jr as the aquarium owner, Dr. Clay Haskett, Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd – this great family movie will inspire the hearts of old and new alike!

A great story that teaches us all about passion, belief in one self, and the power of inspiring our children’s interests and dreams – despite what others tell us.

It is this story of perseverance and determination that inspires Dolphin Tale 2.


The Inspiring True Story of Winter continues in Dolphin Tale 2

The same all-star cast of characters that we have grown to know and love appear in Dolphin Tale 2 – Winter, the amazing dolphin, Sawyer and Hazel – now a young man and woman, Rufus, the nutty crane and more!  The inspiring true story of Winter isn’t over. Several years after receiving a prosthetic tail, Winter loses her surrogate mother, leaving her alone, grieving and unwilling to engage with anyone, even her best human friend, Sawyer. Worse, she may have to be moved from her home at the aquarium due to regulations requiring dolphins to be paired. When Dr. Clay Haskett and his dedicated team can’t find her a companion, it looks like they may lose their beloved Winter…until an unexpected turn of events brings them Hope.
