The story of one’s unique bond with a wild horse is no longer unique. We know it via the classic Black Beauty story, Seabiscuit, Dreamer, Hidalgo, War Horse, and more. They tackle powerful themes of taking down the saddle of the human world and tapping into a journey that is as graceful and dynamic as the stallions themselves. Back in 2002, Dreamworks reimagined this kind of narrative beautifully with Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, and now, for the first time since, the animation studio has finally brought the mustang back to the big screen. Sadly, the franchise has been significantly downgraded with Spirit Untamed.
