The animation Spirit Riding Free reaches its seventh season on Netflix crowned as one of the children’s audience greatest hits. This show, distributed by Netflix and produced by Dreamworks Animation – the same one that created “Shrek” – won fans all over the world because of its simple but very engaging story that accompanies the friendship and companionship between the girl Lucky and the horse Spirit.
In this new installment of episodes, we continue to follow these adventures, in which Lucky and Spirit further tighten this relationship of affection between them. In addition, there are also other adventures of the girl with her friends, Pru and Abigail, who move the plot and open other paths beyond the relationship between humans and animals. The seventh season, therefore, manages to be the most diversified in content so far.
There are still differences because she is in a city where there is almost nothing to do, but this is much less pronounced than in other seasons. Here she seems more composed and happier – her friendship with Spirit, outside the company of Abigail and Pru, made her more comfortable in this place in the middle of nowhere. The message to the children is very clear: no matter where you are, if you have good friends and companions, you have everything. In addition, it also shows the importance of taking good care of animals, as they may be better companions, more often than humans.
This series is based on the 2002 film, “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”, which received an Oscar nomination for Best Animation. There are big differences between the story of the film and the one that we follow in this production, but the spirit is practically the same. Kelly Asbury and Lorna Cook, directors of the film, have created a very nice atmosphere with a human story about friendship, and this holds true for all seasons of the derivative series.
It is an important and beautiful message that must be preserved – and this long-lived production can maintain that spirit.
