Free Willy 2 introduces Elvis, Jesse's estranged half-brother who has had a rough go of it living in New York with their late mother. Any sympathy for the kid is lost when he quickly resorts to lies, mischief, and disrespecting Jesse out of spite and jealousy and generally being a pain in the ass for much of the first half of the movie, until the oil spill and ensuing whale drama takes precedence.
