Hold your horses... literally!

The family-friendly film Spirit Untamed is all about courage and friendship.

Universal Pictures' animated story Spirit Untamed follows Lucky Prescott, a young girl who moves into a new small town and befriends a wild mustang named Spirit. As their friendship grows, Lucky must save Spirit from a horse wrangler with the help of her new friends.

Voice actresses Marsai Martin, McKenna Grace, and Isabela Merced all voice fearless and brave characters in the movie, reflecting much of their own fearlessness when it comes to their blossoming acting careers.

Correspondent Rachel Smith talked to the young stars in the all-new movie about this inspiring story.

Actress Marsai Martin is best known for her roles in the ABC sitcom Black-ish and the Disney series Elena of Avalor, as well as films such as Little, Paw Patrol: The Movie, and more.

"I feel like we need more films like this, that show female empowerment and just the love of friendship," Martin said.

Martin's co-star McKenna Grace also enjoyed making the movie, especially after her more serious role on the hit show, The Handmaid's Tale.

Grace is also known for her roles in block-buster projects such as Gifted, I, Tonya, Captain Marvel, Ready Player One, and more.

Grace voices Abigail, a free-spirited girl in Spirit: Untamed.

"Honestly, it was so fun...I didn't have to go too far out to be able to play Abigail. She's very similar to myself, very positive and energetic and hypes everybody up, and I love her. I loved getting to play her," Grace said.

Marsai and McKenna's co-star Isabela Merced also got to show off her singing skills in a beautiful English-Spanish duet with her movie mom, played by actress Eiza Gonzalez, in Spirit Untamed.

Isabela Merced voices protagonist Lucky in the movie, and has worked on a variety of exciting projects, such as Instant Family, Let It Snow, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and more.

"It was just beautiful and amazing. She [Eiza Gonzalez| has such a nice voice, and I'm so excited," Merced said.

Spirit: Untamed is available to stream on Apple TV+ and Amazon Prime Video.
