First Look: DreamWorks Animation’s ‘Spirit Riding Free’ Headed to Netflix

New series from DreamWorks Animation Television inspired by the Oscar-nominated film ‘Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron’ races to Netflix May 5.

The Oscar-nominated film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron introduced the world to a resilient mustang named Spirit, and now it’s inspired a brand new story set to enchant the next generation of fans in Spirit Riding Free, a Netflix original series from DreamWorks Animation Television, debuting exclusively May 5.

Spirit Riding Free 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 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’s a first look at the new series, which is executive produced by Aury Wallington (Sex and the City, Heroes, Veronica Mars) alongside co-executive producer Jim Schumann (Robot & Monster, Monsters vs. Aliens):

The voice cast includes Amber Frank as “Lucky,” Sydney Park as “Pru,” Bailey Gambertoglio as “Abigail, Darcy Rose Byrnes as “Maricela,” Nolan North as “Jim” and Kari Wahlgreen as “Aunt Cora.”
