    Default Jappeloup - French film

    Does anyone know if an English version, or even a subtitled version of the new film Jappeloup is in the works? Here's a link to some information (there's a trailer there as well), but I can't see anything about other versions that might be released.

    I sincerely hope they've got something planned!

    It looks like a tv series.

    Ahhh, my favorite pony!

    I still remember seeing Japeloupe, Big Ben and Milton in the ring at the same competition at Spruce Meadows - will be a long time before three such legends meet again.

    No, it's a 130 min film to be released in March '13. I can't find anything about it being released either in in English or subtitled though.

    It looks awesome! Made me go watch a bunch of old videos of the real deal. Here he is at the '88 Olympics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJ5G49bYMT0

    the FB page says in Quebec late summer/early Fall. I asked if there would be an English version. Will see if I get a reply!

    They said they would let me know as soon as possible and in the meantime, sent me the link to the subtitled trailer

    Can't wait to see it! I have an old video of him at the World Championships. Durand was genuinely worried about having to let other riders on him. Even though they were all the best in the world!.

    Even if I have to watch it in French, it will still be better than Secretariat

    A subtitled trailer gives me hope!

    My 89 yo mother just called me... She just saw the movie and she LOVED it. And she is not a horsey person AT ALL. She went with a friend of hers who has never even approached a horse and both loved it. The theatre was full!! lots of cheers at the end!

    I can't wait to see that movie! Jappeloup is my favorite Jumper ever. The little horse that could. I'll always remember when he stopped at a jump and dumped his rider (at some big competition, too, the LA games, was it?) and took off without a bridle. Feisty little thing. He and Galoubet were just so much FUN to watch.

    Guillaume Canet, the actor who plays Durand in the movie was a Grand Prix rider before going into acting, and he did all the jumping in the movie himself.

    But sheesh, Jacques Higelin is so old now! Man, time flies....

    Frankly, Jappeloup's story reminds me of Hickstead... the little Canadian horse that could.. with the right rider!
    My mom has listened to all the interviews, read everything she could on that movie. I can't believe it... I must admit I did not follow Jappeloup in real life at the time. That's when I was moving to Canada and had a few other things on my mind!

    G. Canet went into acting because he was injured in a riding accident.
