According to The Hollywood Reporter, Walt Disney Pictures intends to bring new meaning to the term "Navy SEALs." The studio is developing a project that takes place at the San Diego Marine Mammals base, where in years past the Navy researched the hydrodynamics of torpedoes by studying dolphins. The Navy discovered the mammals were trainable and developed a program in which dolphins, sea lions and seals were trained to do recon, rescue downed pilots, look for mines and other tasks. The original dolphins are still in the program today.
The movie will focus on the marine creatures as its main characters. It has not been determined whether it will be live action or animated.
