Spirit Untamed is a 2021 American computer-animated adventure film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Universal Pictures. The film is directed by Elaine Bogan and co-directed by Ennio Torresan Jr., in their feature directorial debuts, from a screenplay written by Aury Wallington and Kristin Hahn. The second theatrical film release of the Spirit franchise, the film is a spin-off of the traditionally animated Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) and based on its Netflix animated spin-off television series Spirit Riding Free, developed by Wallington.

It stars Isabela Merced, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marsai Martin, Mckenna Grace, Julianne Moore, Walton Goggins, and Eiza González, and follows a young girl named Fortuna “Lucky” Prescott who moves to the small rural community of Miradero, where she meets the titular wild kiger mustang she names “Spirit” and immediately begins to bond with him. The film was announced to be in development in October 2019, and production was done remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was dedicated to the memory of Kelly Asbury, the co-director of the original Spirit film, who passed away in 2020.
