Story line and plot, Every year the Chincoteague fire department rounds up the wild ponies of Assateague.Read more ›
Both the book and movie characters were based on real people (and ponies). Misty was an equine celebrity with children all over America. After a storm nearly destroyed Chincoteague, the real Misty often appeared in theaters where this film was shown to raise money to rebuild the island.
Arthur O'Connell as Grandpa Beebe was a disappointment. He doesn't speak in the warm, grizzled ways like the character in the book and he doesn't even have a Southern accent.
The film was shot in CinamaScope and the video is formatted in pan-and-scan. There are many instances during the film where the cropped picture looks distorted because of this. If you really want to enjoy the beauty of this film, hold out for a widescreen version on DVD. It would be nice if future editions of this film also had a documentary about the real Misty and her life.
Note: This video has been unavailible for many years and I have had to use a very old library copy. Hooray for Disney for re-releasing it and for Amazon for offering it to the world!! Now many more children will get a chance to know this story and read the book and possibly head to "Pony Penning Day" Patty in VA.

We loved the book and the followup to this book. This movie is good but ends a little abruptly. Good for the whole family.Published on July 19 2002 by Paul Schmidt
