Development

On October 7, 2019, DreamWorks Animation announced that a feature film based on the Spirit Riding Free series was in development, with Elaine Bogan and Ennio Torresan serving as co-directors from a script by series creator Aury Wallington, and produced by Karen Foster with a release date of May 14, 2021. The film will be produced on a lower budget and be made by a different animation studio outside of DreamWorks, similar to Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.[2]

Production

In May 2020, production began and was done remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.[3] In June 2020, the USPTO trademarked “Spirit Untamed” despite no confirmation by Dreamworks yet.[4]
