Free Willy: Escape From Pirate’s Cove DVD

Although it wasn’t filmed in the San Juan Islands like before, the latest Free Willy movie, Escape From Pirate’s Cove, is sure to interest Orca lovers of all ages. It was released on DVD a couple of weeks ago and features Bindi Irwin (daughter of the late Steve Irwin) and veteran actor Beau Bridges. It is described as “more a retelling of the original 1993 Free Willy film than a third sequel in the series, Free Willy: Escape from Pirate’s Cove is the story of a young whale who’s separated from his pod, used in a moneymaking scheme, and befriended by a young girl who ultimately makes a huge difference in the young whale’s life.”
