With each new release on Netflix from DreamWorks Animation, each show gets better and better. Their newest show coming to Netflix next week might be one of our favorites yet, and it’s because we can relate to the character so well! Spirit Riding Free tells the tale of a young girl who loves horses, and is a coming of age story. From both animal lovers, young girls and adventure lovers – Spirit Riding Free is going to be the next great show to enjoy.
Each episode of Spirit Riding Free will be 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.
