Interviews from Black Beauty’s virtual press day are starting to be uploaded! Here’s the one we have so far and I’ll add more as they appear.
Disney held a socially distanced press event today for Black Beauty. Mackenzie along with director Ashley Avis (and her horse Ghost) were there to talk all about the movie! I’ve added some professional photos from the afternoon below and will update this post as more media appears. Stream Black Beauty next Friday, November 27th, only on Disney Plus!
If Mackenzie Foy looks familiar, it’s because you’ve seen her onscreen for more than a decade. At just 20, the actress already has a filmography performers twice her age would be proud of, having starred in Interstellar, The Conjuring, and Disney’s fantastical interpretation of The Nutcracker ballet. This year, Foy brings another beloved classic to life with Black Beauty, Anna Sewell’s iconic novel about the bond between a girl and her horse.CONTINUE READING
Mackenzie was a guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show today! She talked horses, girl power, and of course Black Beauty. Check it out.
The official trailer for Mackenzie’s new film, Black Beauty is finally here! Watch it out below now and check it out on Disney+ beginning November 27th! I’ve also added screencaptures from the gallery which you can find here.
Makenzie Foy is a (self-proclaimed) wannabe horse girl. The nineteen-year old actor, best known for her roles in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and Interstellar, was recently “bit by the pony bug” while revamping Anna Sewell’s 1877 novel Black Beauty for its second film adaptation. Starring as Jo Green, a seventeen-year old grieving the death of her parents, Foy shares the screen with Kate Winslet, who plays the voice of the titular mare. Though filming may have wrapped in late 2019, Foy’s foal fever has endured beyond an obligation to her character—she has returned from an afternoon ride just minutes before our chat. “I’m obsessed now,” she gushes. “I’ve been riding every week.”
Citing the nineteenth century classic as a childhood favorite—“one of the ones that you just tore apart from reading so much”—Foy was thrilled to take up the novel’s remake, which was written and directed by 33-year old wunderkind, Ashley Avis. “Ashley is an absolute genius,” Foy, who commenced her career at age four as a child model and in recent years has enjoyed high-fashion support from brands such as Chanel, proclaims. “When I got the script I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, I love it so much!’ And then when I read it, I was just crying by the end of it, that’s how perfect it was. It was everything that I wanted it to be.”
Mackenzie’s latest movie Black Beauty finally has a release date! The film will be available to stream beginning November 27th only on Disney Plus. Be sure to follow Disney Plus along with Mackenzie and the films director Ashley Avis on Instagram for the latest and up-to-date info on the film!
