„Spirit – Stallion of the Cimarron“ is an animated movie which was produced by Dream Works (2002). The story is about the Mustang Spirit and his adventures in the Wild West. The movie was made by traditional hand-drawn animation which then became animated with the help of a special computer program.The big difference between this and other animated movies is the fact that the animals are not able to speak. The only thing you can hear are the thoughts of the animals from time to time.
Spirit grows up in a herd of Mustangs. When he is old enough he shall become the new leader of the herd. However he gets caught by humans who take him to their post. With the help of the captured Indian Little Creek the horse is able to escape. Spirit and his new friend discover the Wild West. Finally the Indian decides to keep the wild Mustang in his little pueblo and tries to ride him. After some time however he has to understand that Spirit will always stay a wild and independent Mustang. In the pueblo Spirit meets the mare Rain and they fall in love. Together they leave the pueblo and begin to live in peace and freedom in Spirits herd.
This movie was once Oscar-nominated for the best animated Movie but unfortunately did not win.
Spirit is not just a wild Mustang in an animated movie – he lives on the Sanctuary Return to Freedom!
“Sometimes a horse has got to do what a horse has got to do.” (Quote from Spirit)
