Movie Info

In the third "Free Willy" film, Jesse (Jason James Richter) is 16 and employed aboard a research ship along with his old friend and mentor, Randolph (August Schellenberg). After Jesse meets Max (Vincent Berry), the disapproving son of a whaler hoping to catch Willy the orca for his meat, the two team with oceanographer Drew (Annie Corley) to stop the whalers before they can get to Willy and the rest of his pod, and convince them to give up their cruel and illegal practice.

    The weakest in the series! I did not find much to like about this film!

    They had already done captivity and environmental issues , now they focus on the illegality of whale hunting. I think out of the three films this film was the most serious. As a Kid I did not really like it because I was to used to the family-like background of the first two, but as a recent watcher of this, it's not so bad at all. It really promotes and shows the harms of whaling in a way that our young society may relate too. I only did not like the film quite as equally because it had a lack of characters - no anne, no glenn, not even a mention of Elvis. It strolled away from the original two but it done well at doing so. It's worth a watch for adults and a worth buying for your kids to show the importance of these issues that do not only face whales, but many specices on earth.

    Keiko, the orca star of the "Free Willy" franchise, scores the hat trick with this third adventure, which finds Willy happily acclimated and siring a child in the waters off the Pacific Northwest... Keiko, the orca star of the "Free Willy" franchise, scores the hat trick with this third adventure, which finds Willy happily acclimated and siring a child in the waters off the Pacific Northwest coast. But there's still danger afoot, as Willy's human pal Jesse discovers when he encounters a local fishing boat illegally harvesting whales.
