Disney+ released the trailer of the film Black Beauty on Thursday. It will premiere on the OTT platform on November 27.
The trailer launch came as Disney+ turned one on Thursday.
While the trailer doesn’t seem to show Black Beaty as talking, Winslet is expected to lend her voice to the character of the horse.

The film is a modern adaptation of Anna Sewell’s 1877 novel by the same name. It is a fictional autobiography of the wild horse and is narrated by her, in this case, Winslet. This story follows a wild, seemingly untamable horse born in the American West before being rounded up and taken from her family to live at Birtwick Stables. There, the animal meets a young girl, Jo Green (played by Foy), who also lost her family. The two forge an unbreakable bond as new buyers threaten to take Black Beauty away again.
Jeremy Bolt and Robert Kulzer from Constantin Film will be producing the project, while Martin Moszkowicz, Edward Winters and Jon Brown will be executive producers. Disney+ acquired the distribution rights of the film from Constantin Film this July.
Black Beauty has been adapted multiple times, for film and television, most recently in 1994 in a version starring Sean Bean and David Thewlis, with Alan Cumming as the voice of the horse, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Foy was last seen in the 2018 film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Davis’s last directorial venture was the 2016 film Adolescence. Winslet was last seen in Ammonite, which premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival. She is currently shooting for Avatar 3.
