Network Premiere on Hallmark Channel - The writer and producer of the smash hit "Nim's Island" bring you the much anticipated sequel, "Return to Nim's Island!"
In "Return to Nim's Island," Nim is the precocious daughter of scientist father Jack. Nim, a bit older now, still has a gift to be "One with nature" and her amazing animal friends. But now that developers and poachers threaten her island, she and her dad must fight to preserve their pristine home and its abundant wildlife.
This is a stirring story about a father and daughter's determination against all odds. In this sequel to the original movie, "Nim's Island," Nim and her father Jack attempt to save their precious island by preventing it from becoming a resort.
Big business and time are their enemies and they are running out of both quickly. They must deal with poachers too, as the island is invaded by men who want to steal the exotic animals and sell them for profit.
The scenery and animals add to the wonder in this film. The themes of friendship and devotion along with overcoming adversity make for a compelling story. We are pleased to award this movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for all ages. See this one soon.
