    More of a spin off from the Netflix series
    I grew up with the original, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and is one of my top five favorites so when I seen this trailer, I was excited until I seen about 99% is about the show. I even tried watching....but I'm disappointed because it wasn't what I was hoping for. It's too much about that one girl . And too much "girl power blah blah blah" It also lacks the art style of the original. It only appeals to a couple of audiences: little girls, and the people who are fans of the original.........while the original had features : brotherly love (Spirit's relationship with the Native American Little Creek), romance (Spirit's relationship with Rain), historical fiction (battle between the Native Americans and the Calvary) .......I also really missed Bryan Adam's and Matt Damon's voice. Also.....SPIRIT ISN'T SUPPOSED TO HAVE A WHITE BLAZE!!!!!!!!

    Fun but clichéd
    This film is much superior to the original Spirit film (which I actually hated), although it is also far more conventional. The conflicts of the main character are set up in striking set pieces at the beginning of the film - she is energetic, mischievous and unsafe, leading to her family sending her away to the country. Her strained relationship with her father and her admiration of her deceased mother mean she is dissatisfied yet again, so she finds company in the town's girls and horses. On some levels, her energy and "wild side" was admirable, but on other levels, this seemed exaggerated and she is quite clearly putting herself in danger. After far too long, she leads the other girls to travel to the sea and rescue some wild horses from bandits. While this was an exciting and action-packed, it turns into pure cliché and it's concerning to send the message that sheer recklessness will lead to success.
