It’s one of the world’s greatest ever children’s takes and now Anna Sewell’s timeless classic Black Beauty finds new life on Disney+.
Watch the full trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
In this modern day reimagining of Anna Sewell’s timeless classic, we follow Black Beauty, a wild horse born free in the American West. Rounded up and taken away from her family, Beauty is brought to Birtwick Stables where she meets a spirited teenage girl, Jo Green. Beauty and Jo forge an unbreakable bond that carries Beauty through the different chapters, challenges, and adventures of her life.
This first look at Black Beauty is utterly magnificent to behold and the setting of an untamed American Western setting gives the story of Black Beauty new meaning and inspiration for a whole new generation of moviegoers.
Young star Mackenzie Foy brings a great naturalness to the character of Jo Green who learns to love again thanks to the healing power of her friendship with Beauty, while Iain Glen makes for a great influence as her stoic uncle John, who sprinkles a bit of cowboy wisdom her way.
Adding to this cast is also the presence of Academy Award winner Kate Winslet who will portray the inner voice of Beauty.
Fans, both young and old, will be in love with this new adaptation of this enchanting tale and I for one am very excited to see how Black Beauty unfolds on Disney+.
Black Beauty will arrive in Disney+ on November 27.
