Did you know Black Beauty is based on a book written by Anna Sewell and published in 1877? I sure didn’t.
I remember watching a Black Beauty movie as a kid in the early 1980s. Though I don’t remember much about it, I still have fond feelings for it even to this day.
When I discovered that Disney Plus released an adaptation of the title, I couldn’t wait to watch it with my own kids.
I’m very pleased to share with you that I think Black Beauty (2020) is a wonderful family film. It is exciting, pleasing to the eye, emotional, fast-paced, and imparts several important lessons.
I’ll admit that it gets a little sappy from time to time and that it pushes the boundaries of logic when it comes to plot, but, like I said, it’s got a great message and proved entertaining for the whole family.
If you have Disney Plus and would like to watch something as a family, you could do a lot worse than Black Beauty.
