| Important themes
I liked this movie a lot. The animation was well done and the romance was cute. I liked most of Bryan Adams' songs and the Hans Zimmer score was excellent. What a lot of people don't realize is how well it relates to the Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now themes (what happens when so-called "civilization" invades someone elses home, what does it mean to be "civilized" etc.). The opening scenery and music were very stirring. The film is a lament to an America that was once beautiful.

Did You Know?


There was a book called Esperanza that was a prequel based around Spirit's parents. Spirit's dad is a black stallion named Strider. There are also books based on Rain's family history; her mother is named Sierra and her grandmother was a pampered riding horse named Bonita.


The Colonel: There are those in Washington that the west never will be settle
The Colonel: The northern Pacific railroad will never breach Nebraska...
The Colonel: A Hostile Lakota, will never submit to providence
The Colonel: And it is that manner of small thinking
The Colonel: That would say this horses never could...


At one point while Spirit is watching Rain and Little Creek from inside the pen, you can see a bottom portion of his mouth pass through a log in the fence and linger there briefly, as if the log wasn't there.

Crazy Credits

No opening credits (for music composer, producers, screenplay and directors, etc.) are shown, which is story are about western horses is beginning well after the title of the film, "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron", although for the 2010s it conscious not quietly for commonplace and major films to not have opening credits. It was stuck of considered involving in 2002.
