Adventure awaits.

Spirit Untamed[1] is an upcoming coumputer animated film that is a sequel/spin-off to the 2002 traditionally-animated film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, as well as being a reboot of the Netflix series, Spirit Riding Free. Produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Universal Pictures, the film was directed by Elaine Bogan and co-directed by Ennio Torresan in their feature film directorial debuts and written by the show’s creator Aury Wallington. It is set to be released on June 4, 2021, and will be the 40th feature film of DreamWorks Animation.


Lucky Prescott 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. Like her mother, Lucky isn’t exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her Aunt Cora no small amount of worry. Lucky has grown up in an East Coast city under Cora’s watchful eye, but when Lucky presses her own luck with one too many risky escapades, Cora picks up stakes and moves them both back with Lucky’s father, Jim, in Miradero. Lucky is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy little town. She has a change of heart when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak, and befriends two local horseback riders, Abigail Stone and Pru Granger. Pru’s father, stable owner Al Granger, is the best friend of Lucky’s father. 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 labor, 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 that she never expected.[2]



In October 2019, DreamWorks Animation announced that a feature film based on the Spirit Riding Free series was in development, with Elaine Bogan serving as director and Ennio Torresan serving as co-director from a script by series creator Aury Wallington, and produced by Karen Foster. 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. The film was scheduled for a release on May 14, 2021.[4]


In May 2020, production was done remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.[5] In November 2020, the film was delayed to June 11th, 2021.[6]
