How far would you go for a friend?
Audiences around the world were touched by this story of a troubled boy and the captive Orca whale he befriends. Now experience the friendship, adventure and fun with this 10th Anniversary Special Edition!
Captured at sea and confined in a small tank at an aquatic park, Willy (Keiko the Orca whale) is an unhappy and unpredictable attraction. No one understands Willy-except a scruffy street kid named Jesse (Jason James Richter)-who knows what it's like to be without a family. Together these two form a special bond...one so strong that they're willing to risk it all to find a way home!

"The most rousing family adventure since E.T.  Bob Campbell, Newhouse News Service
"Pure magic. You will cheer.  Joel Siegel, Good Morning Amerca
"Willy will win your heart.  WOR Radio

Editor's Note
Jesse, a homeless orphan who spends his days evading the police, finally gets caught spray painting a whale tank at a local park. Because he distrusts adults intensely, Jesse's not too happy when authorities place him in a foster home and sentence him to clean up the tank he vandalized. Unexpectedly, Willy, the whale who inhabits the tank, takes a liking to Jesse, and the animal and child develop a bond -- a bond that also helps Jesse open up to the adults in his life, including his new parents and the whale's caretakers. But then Jesse learns that Dial, who owns the park, only wants to keep Willy if he can be trained to perform for an audience. Can the boy find a way to save his beloved whale before Dial plays some dirty tricks of his own?

Variety
"...An exhilarating drama....An astute, intelligent family picture, the film is a potent reminder that you can have your heart in the right place and still produce a gripping, satisfying entertainment..." 07/19/1993

Washington Post 7 of 10
It sounds like it won't add up to much--a boy, a whale and a G-rated movie. But Free Willy is - Desson Howe

ReelViews 7 of 10
This is one of those unusual films that is capable of enthralling those under twelve while not sendi - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun Times 7 of 10
Free Willy has a kind of gentle sweetness that I found very appealing. It is about change - a - Roger Ebert
