SVOD service Disney+ will stream a contemporary adaptation of Anna Sewell’s classic 19th century novel Black Beauty later this year.
The story, featuring Kate Winslet (as The Reader) and starring Mackenzie Foy (Interstellar), follows Black Beauty, who is a wild mustang born free in the American west. When she is captured and taken away from family, her story intertwines with that of 17-year-old Jo Green, similarly grieving over the loss of her parents. The two slowly develop a bond that is built on love, respect and mutual healing.
Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”) and Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) also star.
