Untitled Spirit Riding Free Film
In Theaters May 14, 2021
An epic adventure about the unbreakable bond between a girl and a wild stallion, 'Spirit Riding Free' is the next film in the popular motion-picture and animated television series franchise from DreamWorks Animation.
When headstrong Lucky Prescott is forced to move from her big city home to a small frontier town, she becomes a complete fish-out-of-water. But her life is changed forever when she makes new friends and forms an inseparable bond with a wild mustang named Spirit. When Spirit’s herd is captured by rustlers, the girls and their horses must undertake the adventure of a lifetime to save them.
DreamWorks Animation Television’s Netflix original series, on which the film is based, was itself inspired by the 2002 Oscar®-nominated film 'Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron', narrated by Oscar®-winner Matt Damon. The Emmy-winning series launched in May 2017 and currently, 52 episodes are available on the platform, with more episodes and content scheduled for this fall and 2020.
This new theatrical film is directed by Elaine Bogan (director, 'Tales of Arcadia: Trollhunters' and '3 Below, Dragons: Race to the Edge') and is produced by Karen Foster (co-producer, 'How To Train Your Dragon'). Ennio Torresan (head of story, 'Abominable' and 'The Boss Baby') serves as co-director.
