Movie Info

A prequel to the 1979 classic "The Black Stallion"--a family drama that presents the horse's adventures with a young girl named Neera, who has been separated from her father in Arabia by WWII. Left alone in the desert, she befriends the wild colt whom she names Shetan. Once reunited with her father, however, Neera remains haunted by the images of the "lost horse in the desert"--one of a few stallions of legend, rumored to be "born of the sands, sired by the night sky, drinkers of the wind."

A film truly geared to the 6-year-old level. If not younger.

Wincer delivers a gentle yet vibrant tale of natural splendor, a horse's valor and a young girl's plucky determination.

Houston Chronicle
Top Critic

Continues in the hackneyed tradition of other made-for-IMAX dramas, with storytelling that doesn't measure up to the scope of the screen.

Even though it's no where near the storyline of the book, it's still an amazing movie. It shows the spirit of Shetan (the Black) and determination and kinship between both the girl and horse. I love this movie!

This movie shocked me in such a wonderful matter. It's short, but a real visual treat that you can still see in your mind after you are done watching it. I don't remember if this is a true story or was beautifully done. Wonderful family movie. :)
