A team of top filmmakers (including the screenwriter and producer of the original BLACK STALLION feature) join forces for this exciting new instalment of a family favourite that has captured the imaginations of millions of readers and moviegoers. Disney's first dramatic adventure made expressly for the giant screen is a magnificent and thrilling tale that is a prequel to the 1979 motion picture THE BLACK STALLION.
Set in Northern Africa at the conclusion of World War II, this extraordinary film follows the adventures of a young girl named Neera, who becomes separated from her family and finds herself alone in the desert. When a wild stallion (whom Neera names Shetan) comes to her aid, the two form a special bond and the horse helps Neera to return home to her grandfather. As their friendship and trust grows, the girl devises a daring plan to race the wild Shetan (whose name means "the devil") in the annual horse race and help restore her grandfather's reputation. Staking everything on the race, Neera's iron will and courage combined with Shetan's untamed power and determination culminates in some of the most breathtaking and triumphant scenes ever visualized on the giant screen.
YOUNG BLACK STALLION is directed by Simon Wincer (FREE WILLY) for executive producer Kathleen Kennedy and producers Frank Marshall and Fred Roos, from a screenplay by Jeanne Rosenberg.
