Young Black Stallion
World War II has separated young Neera from her grandfather, who's stuck in Arabia. When the lonely girl finds a wild horse in the desert, she claims it for her own. She's soon reunited with her granddad, but longs for the "lost horse of the desert." A Disney favorite is given a charming prequel (penned by the writer who concocted the first movie) with this story chronicling the stallion's friendship with the plucky lass.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has minor violence (men with guns chase the horses and surround the caravan) and tense scenes (Neera loses consciousness and finds herself lost in the desert), which are magnified by the large IMAX screen and may seem more intense than they would on a normal screen. Some kids might be alarmed when the black stallion's mother is taken away and Neera is left alone in the desert--they might also wonder what happened to Neera's parents (she lives with her grandfather and there is only one passing reference to her mother).
