Trivia

The lyrics from the song "Ride Away," "If we take the road not taken / Who knows what we'll find," may have been adapted from Robert Frost's 1916 poem entitled "The Road Not Taken," a four-stanza poem about a speaker who reflects about his choice of taking a figurative road. See more »

Nice childrens' version of the novel
18 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Amazing that they could get so much of the original Anna Sewell novel into such a short video. Really captures the main story of the young horse Black Beauty growing up in Victorian England. Soft-pedals the sadness, cruelty and harshness of a horse's life depicted in Sewell's book. But still tells a realistic and compassionate story. The animation is colorful, low-budget Asian studio style, verging on low-quality anime. The character design is exaggerated, but appropriate for kids. The handful of songs are soft rock or pop anthems with simple, repetitive positive messages. My kid was singing along and enjoyed everything about this video.
