This sweet vintage shirt is a promotional item for the 1993 family drama movie Free Willy. The movie was directed by Simon Wincer who is also known for directing the Disney movie Operation Dumbo Drop. It starred Lori Petty, Jayne Atkinson, August Schellenberg, Michael Madsen, and Jason James Richter in his film debut. The movie centered around an orphan boy who befriends a captive orca whale at an amusement park.
The whale used to portray the title character was a captive killer whale named Keiko, who lived at the Reino Adventure amusement park in Mexico City. Other close-up shots of the animal were achieved using an animatronic stand-in. Meanwhile the climax of the film, which includes the famous shot of Willy jumping in the air as he is freed, involved CGI.
