While the general theme of this film resembles "The Blue Lagoon" (the film for which this is a sequel), the basic plot is quite different. We open the film with a ship finding the craft with our original characters in it, Richard and Emmeline dead and Paddy alive. Established in the first film, the only word Paddy ever says is "Richard", so the crew assumes Richard is the infant's name. Taken in by Sarah, a widow with an infant baby girl Lilli, Richard (Paddy) is cared for in a return to civilization. Struck by cholera, the crew of the ship start to die and the captain sets Sarah, Richard, Lilli and a healthy crew member on a lifeboat in an attempt to preserve their lives. With water and food running short, the crew member escorting Sarah and the children becomes dangerous, so Sarah takes the only course of action she feels suitable to preserve the children: she strikes him and throws him overboard. Taking control of the small craft, she eventually guides them back to the island of ... Written by
Filming was further complicated by extensive sequences at sea in high surf with Sarah and the two infants. Director William A. Graham, an avid sailor and father of an infant daughter, faced the challenge with the consummate skills of a veteran filmmaker with nearly eighty projects to his credit. Graham said: "While conventional wisdom has proven that working with children, animals and boats can be trying, the rewards are also beyond what one can imagine. When you're working on a film like this with so many unpredictable elements, you never really expect things to go according to plan. You simply get what you can, when you can. You can get a performance from infants, for example, but it requires an enormous amount of patience. What they ultimately give you is so fresh and so wonderful that it is worth all the effort".

Richard continually beats the shark swimming across the reef. A shark can swim from between 25-45mph whereas most Olympic swimmers can only swim about 5mph. He would stand no chance. See more »
Personally, I love The Blue Lagoon Returns. It is such a beautiful film. I think that this movie shows people that nature and civilization are too completely different ways to live. You can also relate it to, living in the City or The Country. Too different ways to live. Milla does an outstanding performance, as does Brian. They both make the film fresh, in some ways. It is a great movie, and I totally recommend it. It is really natural, and I think that is refreshing. A lot of movies nowadays are about things that you would expect. But you wouldn't have expected a movie like this. Also, the Figi background and land, as you may call it, adds something. I think that the film makers did a splendid job, and I thank them for releasing such a good movie. One of my all time favorite's, would definitely be The Blue Lagoon Returns.
