Differences from the original novel

  • Black Beauty is portrayed as a mare instead of a stallion in this film.


  • This is Disney's first ever film adaptation of Black Beauty, and it is the first time Black Beauty is a mare.
  • This is the second live-action film adaption of Black Beauty to feature the talking titular horse after the 1994 Warner Bros. film of the same name (whose titular horse only spoke narratively).
