Watch the epic adventure about a headstrong girl longing for a place to belong and how she discovers a kindred spirit when her life intersects with a wild horse. “Spirit Untamed” from DreamWorks Animation opens in Cinemas 10 June 2021.
Spirit Untamed is the next chapter in DreamWorks Animation’s beloved franchise that began with the 2002 Oscar-nominated film Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron, which follows the story of a horse who is captured by humans and struggles for freedom for the hope of one day returning home to his herd.
Storyline of Spirit Untamed
The main character Lucky Prescott an independent character who never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro a fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the wide-open frontier. She grew up under the watchful eye of her aunt who sent her back to be with her father after one too many risky escapades of her own doing.
Lucky is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy little town of her father but has a change of heart when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak and befriends two local horseback riders.
When a heartless horse wrangler and his team plan to capture Spirit and his herd and auction them off to a life of captivity and hard labour, Lucky enlists her new friends and bravely embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to rescue the horse who has given her freedom and a sense of purpose and has helped Lucky discover a connection to her mother’s legacy and to her Mexican heritage that she never expected.
