Trailer released for 'Dolphin Tale 2' starring Clearwater dolphin

Posted: Updated:
CLEARWATER, FL (WFLA) -

Winter the dolphin is returning to the big screen, and you can now get a sneak peek of what's in store. The trailer for "Dolphin Tale 2" has been released.

Winter drew international attention several years ago when she was fitted with a prosthetic tail at Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

The first "Dolphin Tale" film - released in 2011 - was inspired by Winter's real-life rescue and rehabilitation.

The sequel will focus on another dolphin calf named "Hope" that was rescued in 2010.

Both Hope and Winter remain at Clearwater Marine Aquarium with an older dolphin named Panama.

The new film will again be produced by Alcon Entertainment, with Charles Martin Smith directing.

Dolphin Tale 2 is starring Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, Nathan Gamble.

Warner Bros. says "Dolphin Tale 2" is scheduled to hit theaters on Sept. 19, 2014.
