Richard Ian Cox,
Two horses played the black stallion in this movie: Cass Ole, who played the horse in the first movie; and El Mokhtar, a famous Egyptian Arab racer who was used in the racing scenes. Sadly, El Mokhtar died of colic during the making of the film. See more »

Is The Black Stallion Returns as good as the original? Not quite. The original is a masterpiece, that said this is a wonderful sequel and one of the better ones I've seen recently. The story while having a different focus than the original has some implausible and sluggish moments but many other parts are believable and touching. The script is well written, the direction is competent and the acting from Kelly Reno and Vincent Spano(and the horse) is pretty much superb. However, the best assets of The Black Stallion Returns are the sumptuous visuals and beautiful score. All in all, a wonderful sequel and movie. 9/10 Bethany Cox
