Disney Plus shared the new trailer and poster for its new movie, “Black Beauty” today, which will premiere on the streaming service Fri, Nov 27. And I gotta be honest, the trailer was a bit more emotional than I expected it to be.
But as the girl who grew up loving the Black Beauty story, (it’s one of the few classics I actually loved and read, despite being an avid reader, just like The Secret Garden) I guess it makes sense that this is emotional for me? I mean I grew up LOVING horses and wanting one of my own. I can’t remember if Black Beauty was the reason for that love or not, because I barely remember yesterday let alone when I was in elementary school!
Yet to this day, movies and tv shows about horses still make me happy.
(Especially Free Rein on Netflix, which centers around a Black girl who finds a love for horses when her family spends a Summer in London with her grandfather.)
However, even though I don’t fully remember the story from the book, I do remember how much I loved it. So I can’t wait to see Black Beauty on Disney Plus!
Oh and the horse WILL talk!
So I’m extremely excited about that. (Way more than I should be.) But it also lets me know that this won’t just be an emotional adventure, but it’ll probably also be the silly, family movie we’re used to from Disney!
