Remember when Harry Connick Jr. and friends saved that sweet dolphin Winter, who lost her tail in a crab trap but lived happily ever after with a prosthetic?
Dolphin Tale was the surprise feel-good hit of 2011, scoring the No. 1 spot at the box office in its second weekend of release and earning over $95 million worldwide. And now there is a sequel.
Dolphin Tale 2 reunites Connick Jr. with Ashley Judd, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, Kris Kristofferson, Morgan Freeman, and Austin Stowell in another true story, this one about the rescue of a baby dolphin named Hope. Winter, who played herself in the first film, also returns.
Here’s the trailer:
Dolphin Tale 2 is slated for a Sept. 19 release.
