‘Dolphin Tale 2’ trailer released

By
Published:

The trailer for “Dolphin Tale 2” was released and it looks like another tearjerker.

I admit I never saw “Dolphin Tale” but my kids certainly did.

The original was based on the story of Winter, a stranded dolphin who was rescued in 2005 and fitted with a prosthetic tail at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

It’s always cool to watch a movie that was filmed locally to see if you recognize any landmarks. That’s why we watched “Magic Mike,” right?

According to a story we ran in December 2013, we know locations included Clearwater Beach and Fort De Soto. Part of the movie was filmed at the aquarium, of course.

The sequel will continue to tell Winter’s story, but will also incorporate that of Hope, a young dolphin stranded in the same area Winter was found.

 

Muppet Mania

Speaking of sequels, I saw “Muppets Most Wanted” yesterday and it did not disappoint.

We’ve worn out the first “Muppets” DVD and I’ll say the sequel is just as good. Starting with their hilarious “Sequel” musical number.

Don’t you love when your kids get into the same things you liked as a kid?

With all the pop culture references and cameos (Celine Dion is perfect!), you don’t even need kids to enjoy this one.
