Trivia

The original whale who played Willy in the previous three movies Keiko, died in 2003 of natural causes off the coast of Norway at approximately 26 years old. He lived his last years as a free whale partly in a Norwegian fjord. Male Killer Whales have an average life expectancy of 30 years in the wild so he was close to the average life expectancy. Keiko was the second oldest captive Killer Whale ever. See more »

Loved Willy in the 90s? Don't Look for Him Here!
24 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Growing up loving the first 3 Free Willy Movies, I was obviously excited when I heard there was going to be a new one, but I found myself almost completely disappointed by this . . . "sequel".

The only relation that this film has to the "original three films" is the fact that we just happen to have a - much younger - orca named Willy and a - much younger and feminine - adolescent with severe family issues.

Now I do not claim that the original three Free Willy movies were the best films Hollywood has ever had to offer, but this film fails to achieve the structure of the original films - it just doesn't belong! The producers probably slapped "FREE WILLY" on the title to insure that they would at least get a little business from the folks that loved the 90s Willy.

And if that is the truth, they were right - for the most part. However, they did not get any business from this 90s girl! I checked this movie for free - thanks to my public library.

But, alas, this movie may not be a complete tragedy for everyone. I speculate that folks who did see or grow up loving any of the first three Free Willy films, may moderately enjoy this film in its simplicity.
