Here are a couple of new stills from the upcoming 3D family movie DOLPHIN TALE which actually looks pretty darn good.

I've always been a fan of Harry Connick Jr. anyway and Morgan Freeman goes without saying.

Storywise, it seems like a winner. It's based on a real life story too which helps (in most cases). I am sure you will have to bring a pack of tissues with you too.

Here are some of the movie's details:

“Dolphin Tale” is inspired by the amazing true story of a brave dolphin and the compassionate strangers who banded together to save her life. Swimming free, a young dolphin is caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail. She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter. But her fight for survival has just begun. Without a tail, Winter’s prognosis is dire. It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring about a groundbreaking miracle—a miracle that might not only save Winter but could also help scores of people around the world. The real Winter, who plays herself in “Dolphin Tale,” today serves as a symbol of courage, perseverance and hope to millions of people—both able and disabled—who have been touched by her remarkable story of recovery and rehabilitation.

Looking forward to seeing this one for sure. I love human interest stories and ultimately this is all about being human.

My good friends at Paradise FX were involved with this shoot too :-)
