Willy the smart and rebellious whale and Jessie the orphaned boy team up to escape Willy's captivity and horrible owner to get back to his pod. Can they succeed with the help of Annie and Glenn Jessie's foster parents, Randolph the spiritual friend of Willy and Jessie, and Rae Willy's trainer?
The VHS for this film came with an infomercial to receive donations needed to relocate the star orca, Keiko, back to the ocean. It included interviews from the stars of the film, the owners of the Oregon Coast Aquarium, and information on the "Free Willy Keiko Adoption Kit" which came with a Free Willy poster, stickers, a newsletter containing information on how Keiko was being rehabilitated, and a replica of the necklace that Jesse wears in this film. The kit only cost $24.99, and many people all over the world had donated. Soon after rehabilitation, Keiko was freed in the same area in Norway where he was assumed to first be captured. Keiko eventually lived to be 29 years old, making him the second oldest orca to have lived in captivity. The kit has since returned for sale in 2014 on http://savedolphins.eii.org except it now contains information on freeing orcas and dolphins worldwide instead of news about Keiko. See more »
When Jesse, Nadine and Elvis sets out in the boat towards the end of the movie, following Willy and the other Orcas, it's daylight. When the helicopter arrives to rescue them from the burning oil, it's suddenly dark out. It wouldn't take the rescue helicopter several hours to either locate or rescue them, so it couldn't have been evening/late at night. See more »
Hi, I'm Elvis. I'm half Apache.
Nice to meet you, Elvis. Apache. They're the sworn enemy of my people.
[Glares at Elvis]
Um, did I say Apache?
Oh, I meant, I meant, I meant Cherokee.
That's even worse.
[Elvis looks in shock then Randolph bursts out laughing]

On the 2003 DVD, there is an error in the Warner Bros. Family Entertainment logo; when Bugs Bunny eats his carrot while posing by the WB shield, one second of it is skipped. However, the logo is fixed on digital platforms. See more »

disappointing in the extreme
the best thing about this movie is that there are more scenes with the whales.other than that,i can't say i liked it very much.it is shorter than the first one,but feels a lot longer.this movie felt too much like an ecology lesson to me,and it wasn't subtle either.i just found the whole thing overwrought,and i though there was a bit of overacting going on.they had a subplot going on,which i didn't think was necessary,but that's just me.there were some emotional scenes,but i felt like i was being manipulated.towards the end,there are a few tense moments,but overall,the movie is disappointing.if it weren't for the scenes with the whales,this would be a 1 or 2 star movie.i guess for me,Free Willy 2 is a 4/10
