We got fun mail a few days ago. My kids saw the box and couldn’t wait to open it to see what was inside. My 5 year old helped me open it and she was so excited to find it full of fun craft supplies, books, and even a stuffed Spirit horse. They have had so much fun with the supplies in the box and my older girls have really enjoyed reading the book together. When the series came out my kids sat down and watched the whole thing. I even got drawn into the show several times. It is a great show and we can’t wait for season 2!
It is time to “saddle up”! The premiere of DreamWorks Animation’s newest original series SpiritRiding Free, is now available exclusively on Netflix. The series, inspired by the Oscar®-nominated film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, follows the heartfelt journey of a gutsy 12-year-old girl named Lucky who befriends a wild mustang whom she aptly names Spirit. With her two best friends (and their horses) by her side, Lucky and her friends explore a world filled with endless rides, magnificent horses and never ending fun! Together they’ll push their own limits, harness the power of friendship and discover what it truly means to be free.
Here is the Spirit Riding Free OFFICIAL TRAILER
Each episode of Spirit Riding Free is filled with frontier adventures and fun — from inclement weather like flash floods and blizzards, to human malfeasance from train robbers and banditos, to kid-centric capers like treasure hunts and secret sleepovers. And some stories will even be told from the horses’ point of view!
Even the most action-packed episodes will be grounded in the emotional realities of being a kid — stories that will resonate with any kid, anywhere, in any era, whether they go to a one-room country school house or a mega modern high school; stories about fitting in, finding your place, figuring out who you are and who you want to be, and all the other weird, wonderful, alarming, and amazing parts of growing up.
Spirit Riding Free is a coming-of-age story for Lucky, but also, in a very different way, for Spirit. Over the course of the series, each will realize their truest selves. Lucky will learn she is far more than just a city girl with a wild streak, and Spirit will learn that his freedom is only as real as the choices he can make. Together Spirit and Lucky will illustrate both sides of the same theme: only by doing, can we truly become what we are meant to be.
