FAMILY MONDAY: DELIGHTFUL NEW 'DOLPHIN TALE 2' AND 'THE GOOD DINOSAUR' POSTERS! DISNEY'S 'MOANA' ANIMATED ADVENTURE MOVIE ON A POLYNESIAN PRINCESS

DOLPHIN TALE 2
LOVELY NEW POSTERS ARE HERE
We're having a family Monday today at HOLLYWOOD SPY with new pics and posters from upcoming family movies, starting with the charming new posters for the DOLPHIN TALE 2 sequel which will swim into theatres this October! It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick Jr), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter's surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins' social behaviour requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium. Ashley Judd is also in the cast.


THE GOOD DINOSAUR
1ST POSTER FOR PIXAR'S MOVIE
Another thing to check out today is the first poster for Pixar's THE GOOD DINOSAUR which is expected in cinemas in December 2015 following animated adventures of Arlo, a 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus, who befriends a young human boy named Spot. Neil Patrick Harris, John Lithgow and Judy Greer are in the cast!

POLYNESIAN MOANA IS DISNEY'S
NEW CLASSIC PRINCESS
After the huge successes of FROZEN, TANGLED and BRAVE, all eyes are turned over at Disney in anticipation of their new animated movies in the hope that we could get another classic set of animated characters and another memorable fairy tale on the big screen. Planned to appear in cinemas in March 2018 is MOANA, an exotic Polynesian story, set 2000 years ago, of Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.
DID YOU KNOW?  
Ron Clements, who helmed THE LITTLE MERMAID, ALADDIN, HERCULES and THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG is directing together with John Musker who co-directed all those movies together with him. Mark Mancina (THE LION KING, TARZAN, PLANES) is composing the music. MOANA will be Disney's first Polynesian princess! And since Disney's previous movies had adjectival titles, the are rumours that MOANA could be changed into SPIRITED! Before this Disney will release GIANTS classic animated movie based on JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, and after it comes KING OF THE ELVES in 2019 about a band of elves living in modern day Mississippi delta.

  1. Could Moana's waist be any tinier? ARgh! Other than that, looks great!
    Will love to see Harry Connick Jr. in Dolphin Tale 2 with my kiddos!

    1. I must emphasize that the picture I've used is just a concept art or maybe even a fan art, and as far as I've heard her shape in the movie itself is undergoing constant changes from slim and tall to small and plump, from feminine to more masculine, we shall see what happens to her in the end :) BRAVE's Merida was initially rather boyish in looks, but then got a sweeter look later on, and was then changed again and made slim and modelilike in figurines.

    1. I also think it is time for Disney to make a Russian or Slavic inspired princess, or maybe an Ancient Egyptian one... or maybe even a prince since most of their movies lately had ladies in the lead roles

  5. Ordinarily I don't watch films depicting marine life in small pools, however, Dolphin Tale does look sweet.

    1. I don't like captivity in any shape or form. I just think they would much rather be in the sea as apposed to a concrete swimming pool.

      yep, I do not approve of animals kept in hostage either, but this one is about a wounded animal who wouldn't survive outside. I generally do not visit zoo's because of this.

      we have a Zoo in my city, which is one of the best ones in Europe, but here animals are kept not in cages but each animal has an island on which they live surrounded by a moat. Our Zoo also takes in wounded, smuggled and sick animals and treats them.

  8. Fun. I'm always looking for fun movies for the grandkids. With three granddaughters living in Hawaii, Moana should be especially fun.

  10. They all sound really cute, especially the first two. It'll change a bit from the horror movies I'm usually watching. Have a lovely week.

  11. I'm severely opposed to keeping all wildlife from captivity. Zoos are not the appropriate places for wounded or sick animals. Reserves with trained vets are the ONLY way this should be dealt with. This way the animals are always returned to the wild. I believe all Seaworlds and such should be shut down and the owners jailed for life.

    This is a big giant bugaboo for me as I began life as a Wildlife Biologist before switching to Neuroscience.

    1. agreed, dear, as I said in one of the above comments, the movie is a about a dolphin who lost his fin and is thus unable to live in the ocean. It is actually a true story and they've designed him an artificial one
