Black Beauty Announced For Disney+
My teenage self is excited for this one, Disney+ has announced that Anna Sewell’s classic 19th century novel, “Black Beauty” is coming later year!
This is going to be a contemporary adaptation of the beloved story but it’s still all about Black Beauty the wild mustang born free in the American west. She is eventually captured and taken away from family. Her story then intertwines with that of 17-year old Jo Green, similarly grieving over the loss of her parents. The two slowly develop a bond that is built on love, respect and mutual healing.
“Black Beauty” features Oscar® winner Kate Winslet (“The Reader”) as the voice of “Black Beauty” and stars Mackenzie Foy (“Interstellar”) as Jo Green; Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”) as John Manly; and Claire Forlani (“Meet Joe Black”) as Mrs. Winthorp.
“Black Beauty” is directed by Ashley Avis (“Adolescence”) who also wrote the screenplay. JB Pictures’ Jeremy Bolt (“Polar,” “Monster Hunter”) and Robert Kulzer (“Polar”) from Constantin Film are producers and Martin Moszkowicz, Edward Winters and Jon Brown are executive producers.
Dylan Tarason is a co-producer, and Moonlighting Films president Genevieve Hofmeyr (“Mad Max: Fury Road”) is the South African producer. “Black Beauty” is produced by Constantin Film and JB Pictures.
