Continuing the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and rehabilitation -- thanks to the invention of a groundbreaking prosthetic tail -- made her a symbol of perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit, DOLPHIN TALE 2 reunites the cast and crew with the remarkable dolphin Winter and a new dolphin named Hope. Several years have passed since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA), headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, 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 firsthand, enabling CMA to expand their mission to Rescue, Rehabilitate and, when possible, Release injured animals.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of Winter (introduced in 2011's Dolphin Tale), the beloved rescue dolphin that uses a prosthetic tale to swim. The story is family friendly and uplifting overall, but some scenes might be mildly upsetting to younger viewers. For example, Winter becomes antisocial -- and even violent -- after her surrogate mother dies. There are also a few tense rescue scenes and some touching goodbyes, but that's about it, other than some mild flirting between teens Sawyer and Hazel. The sequel isn’t quite as compelling as the original, but it’s just as wholesome and inspiring.
