Correction appended, April 14

Warner Bros. released the trailer for the next installment of the 2011 feel-good family film that had Warner Bros. feeling pretty good at the time.

The first film pulled in $95 million in 2011, and TIME wrote at the time–during a season of few strong family films–that kids and parents “are going to eat this up.”

“Dolphin Tale 2” brings together the same cast, including Winter–the dolphin who played herself in the last film–and Morgan Freeman, for another tale inspired by the true story about a dolphin who is rescued. This time, Winter will be joined by Hope, who will also be playing herself.

The film arrives in theaters Sept. 19.

Correction: The original version of this story incorrectly described the character that Winter will play in Dolphin Tale 2. She will again play herself, and Hope, a new dolphin, will play herself.
