The Black Stallion Returns


He would go to the ends of the earth to rescue his most treasured friend…a champion racehorse named “Black.” This remarkable story about the relationship between a young boy and his horse is a “magnificent spectacle” (Los Angeles Times) with adventures the whole family can enjoy. Co-starring Terri Garr (Mr. Mom) in a heartfelt performance, THE BLACK STALLION RETURNS is an unforgettable journey of courage, hope and friendship that knows no bounds.

“Black” is a stunning fire-and-silk stallion celebrated the world over. But to his young American owner, Alec Ramsey (Kelly Reno), he’s much more. So, when the amazing animal is stolen, Alec will stop at nothing to get him back–from stowing away on a plane to Casablanca to crossing the brutal Sahara desert. With the help of a friend named Raj (Vincent Spano), Alec finally unravels the mystery of Black’s theft…only to discover that he must overcome even greater odds to reclaim his beloved horse.

Dove Review

When three people claim The Black was stolen from them, they come to claim him back. Alec chases them across the world to claim him, and he races in The Big Race, which is his only hope of winning him and returning home with his beloved stallion.

This is a wholesome film which we gladly award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to. Take a ride along with Alec and enjoy The Black as The Black Stallion returns!
