Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron- Western Classic

Today’s topic is Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron where we look at the story of the west from the heart of a horse, not the saddle of one.

Quick Summary~

Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron starts with the birth of the titular character. After a brief time skip, we watch him grow from colt to stallion becoming the leader of his herd. One night, humans are near his territory and he goes to check it out. Unfortunately, this leads to his capture. Dragged through forests and across deserts he enters a camp of the US military. They try to break him but he manages to escape with the help of Little Creek. Little Creek takes him back to his village where he meets Raine. They fall in love, the US military attacks, Spirit is recaptured, and forced to work on the railroad. He escapes and goes back to his herd with Raine.

Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron primarily uses the visuals, music by Bran Adams and Hans Zimmer, and occasional narration from Matt Damon to weave a tale of loss and freedom. So can someone tell me why they decided to make a tv show and movie about Spirit being tamed by a young girl especially when the original was good and complex? In the original Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron, we completed the hero’s journey.
