Isabela Merced and Eiza Gonzalez do not only co-star in the upcoming DreamWorks Animation Spirit Untamed, but also join forces on “Fearless (Valiente Duet),” part of the movie soundtrack.
Merced portrays Lucky Prescott, a headstrong girl looking for a place to belong, and who discovered her kindred spirit after befriending a wild horse named Spirit Untamed. Gonzalez portrays Lucky’s late mother and Miradero-based horse-riding stunt performer, Milagro Navarro.
“Overall, it’s about Lucky finding her community, her family, and people she didn’t think she needed in her life but are there for her,” Merced tells Billboard. “All the while, she’s trying to find the family of this horse that’s been stranded. It’s about a Latina with an identity crisis discovering where she belongs.”
