The release date of the sequel to “Dolphin Tale” has been pushed up a week to Sept. 12.
“Dolphin Tale 2,” filmed in Pinellas County like the 2011 original, picks up the story of Winter the dolphin and her prosthetic tail.
The bottlenose dolphin is the real-life main attraction at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where much of the filming took place from October to January.
The cast of Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman, Kris Kristofferson, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Austin Stowell return for the second film.
A preview trailer was released last week.
The sequel was originally scheduled to be in theaters nationwide Sept. 19.
