I had the pleasure a few months back taking Tay Tay and 9 of her friends to see Spirit Untamed for a personal screening. The kids had an absolute best time and the adults did too! Quite honestly sometimes as an adult it can be hard to sit through a kids movie but this was not the case at all with Spirit Untamed. The story was simply adorable, the music delightful, and the character development/plot fantastic. Now Spirit Untamed in on Digital and will be available on DVD 8/31!
SPIRIT UNTAMED is a story of adventure, family and friendship. Free-spirited Lucky Prescott moves to Miradero to join her estranged father. She is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy town until she discovers a unique tie to her late mother who was a fearless horse-riding stunt performer. She quickly forms a bond with a wild mustang named Spirit and makes two new pals who love horses as much as she does. When a heartless wrangler plans to capture Spirit and his herd, Lucky and her friends set off on an epic journey to rescue the horse who has given her an unbreakable connection to her mother’s legacy.
SPIRIT UNTAMED stars Isabela Merced (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), Marsai Martin (Little), Mckenna Grace (Captain Marvel), Walton Goggins (“Justified”), Andre Braugher (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Eiza González (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw), with Julianne Moore (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Spider-Man: Far From Home). The adventure is directed by Elaine Bogan (“Trolhunters: Tales of Arcadia”) and co-directed by Ennio Torresan (The Boss Baby). The film is produced by Karen Foster (How to Train Your Dragon) and the film’s score and original song “Fearless” is by composer Amie Doherty (Marooned).
