This Mothers Day listen to the new song “Fearless” (Valiente) from the upcoming Universal Pictures film, Spirit Untamed, starring Eiza Gonzales and Isabela Merced.
This bilingual duet track, performed by Gonzalez and Merced, who play a mother (Milagro Navarro) and daughter (Lucky Prescott) in the animated film. Beautifully captures the special mother-daughter connection shared by Lucky and Milagro throughout the film.
In DreamWorks Animation’s next chapter of the beloved franchise that began with Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron in 2002. Spirit Untamed is an epic adventure about a headstrong girl longing for a place to belong, who discovers a kindred spirit when her life intersects with a wild horse.
Lucky Prescott (Merced) never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro (González), a fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the wide-open frontier.
Like her mother, Lucky isn’t exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her Aunt Cora no small amount of worry. Lucky has grown up in an East Coast city under Cora’s watchful eye, but when Lucky presses her own luck with one too many risky escapades, Cora picks up stakes and moves them both back with Lucky’s father, Jim, in Miradero.
Lucky is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy little town. She has a change of heart when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak, and befriends two local horseback riders, Abigail Stone and Pru Granger. Pru’s father, stable owner Al Granger, is the best friend of Lucky’s father.
When a heartless horse wrangler and his team plan to capture Spirit and his herd and auction them off to a life of captivity and hard labor, Lucky enlists her new friends and bravely embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to rescue the horse who has given her freedom and a sense of purpose, and has helped Lucky discover a connection to her mother’s legacy and to her Mexican heritage that she never expected.
Directed by Elaine Bogan. The film also stars Julianne Moore, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marsai Martin, Mckenna Grace, Walton Goggins and Andre Braugher.
Spirit Untamed is in theaters June 4th.
