Film Details




88 minutes






In the Southside Reef, a lowly fish named Oscar fantasises about being rich and famous but owes money to his boss, a pufferfish named Sykes. Meanwhile, mob boss Don Lino – who heads up a gang of fearsome sharks, orcas, swordfish, and octopuses – is unhappy with his son Lenny being a vegetarian, and tasks Lenny’s brother, Frankie, with mentoring him. After Oscar loses his remaining cash after betting it on a seahorse race which he believed was rigged, Sykes is furious and orders two jellyfish enforcers to deal with him. When the two sharks stumble upon the scene, Frankie encourages Lenny to eat Oscar and make their father proud, but Lenny instead frees Oscar and tells him to escape. When Frankie is killed by a wayward anchor in the aftermath and no witnesses to argue otherwise, Oscar takes credit for the killing and gains a reputation as the “Sharkslayer”. ‘Shark Tale’ is a lively animation which explores themes such as identity, friendship, and community.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
