The new promotional spot for the “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron” sequel features Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version).”
The galloping protagonist of Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron is returning for another adventure: Spirit Untamed, an animated feature set to open in theaters June 4. And no less a luminary than Taylor Swift can be heard on the latest promotional spot for the film, which skillfully employs Swift’s “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version).”
As for the sequel itself — here’s what the Universal Pictures publicity people tell us what’s in store for us.
“Lucky Prescott (voiced by Isabela Merced) never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro (Eiza González), 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 (Julianne Moore) 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 (Jake Gyllenhaal), 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 (Mckenna Grace) and Pru Granger (Marsai Martin). Pru’s father, stable owner Al Granger (Andre Braugher), is the best friend of Lucky’s father.
“When a heartless horse wrangler (Walton Goggins) 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 and to her Mexican heritage that she never expected.”
