Inspired by a true story, ‘Dolphin Tale’ is an American 3D movie helmed by director Charles Martin Smith and written by Karen Janszen and Naomi Dromi and a novel of the exact title. It features Harry Connick Jr., Nathan Gamble, Cozi ZuehlsdorffAshley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, and Morgan Freeman. The story follows a Bottlenose Dolphin named Winter that was saved in December 2005 off the coast of Florida and sheltered by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. In the movie, Winter’s tail had decapitated as it was entrapped with a rope connected to a crab trap, and had to be fitted with a prosthetic tail.
Dolphin Tale premiered on September 23, 2011, by Warner Bros. Pictures. The movie earned favorable responses from reviewers and estimated over $95 million at the box office against a budget of $37 million. The second part of the film was launched on September 12, 2014, and collected over $57 million at the box office worldwide.
Following the success of the previous two movies, fans have been looking forward to the third part of the movie although it seemed quite unlikely as it has been over seven years since the last movie dropped. But can we still expect Dolphin Tale 3? Let’s get on with the deets below:

Dolphin Tale 3: Will it Return in 2023?
As of yet, there has been no information concerning Dolphin Tale 3. The second part of the movie was released nearly a decade ago and because there’s been no word from the filmmakers or the cast members indicates that perhaps they don’t have any intention of making another part of the movie. So no, Dolphin Tale will not return in 2023.
