Sony's Pure Flix Acquires Dolphin Island
[Los Angeles, CA] Pure Flix, Sony Pictures’ faith and family entertainment streaming service acquired the SVOD rights for DOLPHIN ISLAND, which will be available on the platform starting September 1
Dolphin Island is approved for all ages by The Dove Foundation, which called the film “a heartwarming tale of love and accountability.”
Directed by Mike Disa (SPACE DOGS, HOODWINKED TOO!) and Produced by Shaked Berenson (SPACE DOGS, A TIGER’S TALE), and Written by Disa, Berenson, and Rolfe Kanefsky (PUPPY SWAP: LOVE UNLEASHED), DOLPHIN ISLAND is a family-focused movie sharing the story of a girl, her dolphin, and the power of family.
Disa shares, “We set out to make a heartwarming movie that shares about the power of family and community. We couldn’t have expected the timing that, shortly after filming, our world would be shut down to traveling.”
Berenson adds, “We hope the film helps families escape to a beautiful island paradise, that it can inspire girls to seek out careers in science, and it can help us consider the power of family-in whatever form we may find it.”
DOLPHIN ISLAND invites us to experience an island paradise, where teenager Annabel lives with her fisherman grandfather. She is surrounded by an extended family of loving but quirky neighbors and her best friend, a dolphin named Mitzy. Everything changes when her maternal grandparents arrive with a shifty lawyer to bring her back to New York. It’s up to Annabel and her friends to figure out how to save the day and prove that love conquers all!
DOLPHIN ISLAND stars Peter Woodward (THE PATRIOT),
Dionne Lea (NO BAD DAYS), Tyler Jade Nixon (DOLPHIN KICK),
Bob Bledsoe (Parks & Recreation), David Raizor (YOU CAN’T TAKE MY DAUGHTER),
and introducing Annette Duncan and Aaron Borrow.
The film was created by Mr. Puppy Presents, the family and animation label of Shaked Berenson’s film finance and distribution company, Entertainment Squad.
Dolphin Island is also available for purchase on DVD on the official website: https://dolphinislandmovie.com/dvd/
A portion of the profits goes to the local cast and crew in The Bahamas, where the movie was produced after the country was devastated by hurricane Dorian.
