In the world of entertainment, family-friendly films are noticeably under-represented. That’s why we’re so excited to see Dolphin Tale 2 headed to theaters this fall! If your family enjoyed the first inspiring tale of friendship and overcoming obstacles, you’re going to enjoy the sequel, as well.
Inspirational professional surfer Bethany Hamilton (the subject of the feature Soul Surfer) will join returning cast members Harry Connick, Jr., Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman, Academy Award® nominee Kris Kristofferson, Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Ashley Judd, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, and of course Winter, the dolphin. Dolphin Tale 2 tells another true story inspired by the rescue of a new baby dolphin named Hope, who was saved and rehabilitated by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Some interesting facts about the movie and its cast include:
- The two children, who play homeschooled children in the movie, are actually Christian homeschoolers in real life!
- The CEO (David Yates) of the aquarium that hosts Winter is a Christian and it was because of his vision that the story was made into a movie.
- The aquarium has even set up a webcam to make Winter available to online viewers at any time.
We’ll be sharing more of the story in the summer issue of Homeschooling Today. In the meantime, enjoy the movie trailer!
