The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
Fishermen separate a young orca whale (Willy) from his parents and he ends up in a fish bowl at a marina. Meanwhile, a street kid runs afoul of the law and gets caught vandalising the marina, but his social worker gets him off the hook (so to speak) provided he cleans up his mess at the marina. While there, he befriends the whale and teaches him tricks, something the trainer hasn't been able to do. But when Willy is a dud in front of the audience, the marina owner plans some bad things, and the boy and his friends must try to (*** MAJOR SPOILERS ***) free Willy.Written by

When Randolph asked Jesse if he had ever looked into Willy's eyes, he said, about orcas, "Those eyes discovered the stars long before man was even a whisper on this Earth", but later when telling Jesse the Haida story about Natselane, he said "Natselane was a Haida who lived long before there were orca whales".

The 1993 VHS release shows the variant of the Warner Bros. Family Entertainment logo where Bugs Bunny spins the banner around the WB shield before stepping to the left from under the shield for his pose while other pre-2015 printings show the variant that just shows Bugs stepping to the left for his pose starts after the WB shield is posed against the sky.

First, of all it is impossible for a 12-year old kid to have a friendship with a killer whale. However, it is pure magic. A 12-year street kid Jesse(Jason James Richter) ends up getting arrested for spraying graffiti all over a northwest aquatic park. He ends up having the responsibility to clean up. Meanwhile, he lives with a foster care family, the Greenwoods(Micheal Madsen and Jayne Atkinson) until Dwight(Mykelti T. Williamson)can find his mother. But, he ends meet a pal by the name of Willy. He's a killer whale. He's a beautiful animal and well tamed, but he is very, very sick, needs his family and wants to go back out into the ocean. The emotion in this movie is touching.
Being a 24 year old, I had a ball.
