Dolphin Tale 2 Arrives in Theaters on September 12th! Enter to Win a #DolphinTale2 Prize Pack! #WinterHasHope #HomeschoolDay2014

My kids and I are so excited that Dolphin Tale 2 is coming to theaters! We absolutely loved the first movie and even own the DVD. Since we live in Florida, we especially love the film’s location and emphasis on Florida wildlife. I am really pleased, too, that the new movie reunites the entire original cast. Read on to find out more about the movie, watch the trailer, and find out how you can enter the giveaway for a Dolphin Tale 2 Prize Pack!

About the movie:
Inspired by true events, 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. This film reunites the entire main cast, led by Harry Connick Jr., Oscar winner Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, and of course, the remarkable dolphin Winter as herself. Champion surfer Bethany Hamilton, who has been an example of courage, also appears in the film.

It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, 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 pool mate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have 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.

Watch the trailer!


Dolphin Tale 2’s release date, September 12, also happens to be Homeschool Day 2014. If your children are homeschooled and you are interested in taking a group to see the film, be sure to visit HomeSchoolMovieClub.com for more information. You can also download a Dolphin Tale 2 curriculum!

Mark your calendar for Friday September 12, 2014 … the official release date of Dolphin Tale 2! Our family can’t wait to see the movie. Hope to see you there!
