Alcon Entertainment has announced that it is in the final stages of developing Dolphin Tale 2. The film is a sequel to the 2011 family film based on the true story of a bottlenose dolphin named Winter that was rescued off the Florida coast in 2005 and outfitted with a prosthetic tail. Dolphin Tale 2 will focus on another true story inspired by the life of Winter involving a baby dolphin. The new dolphin, named Hope, will be playing herself in the film.

Charles Martin Smith, who directed the first film, will return to write and direct Dolphin Tale 2, with the entirety of the original cast expected to reprise their roles as well. That includes Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, and Kris Kristofferson. Dolphin Tale 2 is poised to hit theaters on September 19, 2014.
