Jake Gyllenhaal: ‘Spirit Untamed’ Is Perfect For Our Time

Spirit in DreamWorks Animation’s Spirit Untamed, directed by Elaine Bogan.

Nineteen years after Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron was released, it’s finally getting its theatrical sequel. Spirit Untamed, an animated movie featuring the voices of Jake Gyllenhaal and Isabela Merced, embraces its Wild West setting, as the story unfolds amidst the wide open spaces of the frontier. After a year in which so many people experienced feelings of claustrophobia and isolation because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gyllenhaal thinks it’s the perfect setting — and perfect message — for these times.
