Dolphin Tale 2 (2014)
Harry Connick, Jr., Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, Austin Stowell, Bethany Hamilton
Inspired by the true story of a dolphin named Winter who was rescued off the Florida coast. The film will follow a boy who befriends an injured dolphin who lost her tail in a crab trap.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment's Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery--thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail--made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie Dolphin Tale.
It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life.
Yet their fight is not over. Winter's surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins' social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.
Reprising their roles, Kristofferson plays Clay's father, Reed; Zuehlsdorff is Clay's teenage daughter, Hazel; Judd returns as Sawyer's mom, Lorraine; and Stowell plays Sawyer's cousin, Kyle. Champion surfer Bethany Hamilton, who herself has been an example of courage, appears as herself in the film.
Dolphin Tale 2 was filmed at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the non-profit rescue and rehabilitation facility that Winter calls home.
