I'm trying to find the title of a movie I saw as a kid. It is a sci fi kids/young adults movie from the 80's, 90's, or very early 2000's about two alien girls (probably sisters-1 teenager age-15-17, the other younger-maybe 10-13) who become stuck or stranded on Earth until they could be picked up by a larger/another ship. They end up at a ranch or farm (that seemed like Oregan or Montana or Colorado or some northern/mid-western state in the US) staying with a family for safety...because they do run into some trouble (I just can't remember what kind).

The girls have hair that change color from a white-ish color to a blonde/darker one, but I don't remember why it changes color. I also remember the older girl has a love interest of a boy around the same age as her who might have been the son of the family they stay with, but might not. I think she bonds with the family over the horses and other ranch work and enters a rodeo type of event or horse racing event (I'm not sure which, but I remember that does factor in somewhere).

The younger girl was kind of random comic relief and was also vaguely in the cowboy type stuff. The girls also had either some powers or technology (possibly even a critter/pet) that allowed them to cause a bit of mischief, but nothing serious (specifically the younger one).

It might have been made in Australia or Canada or it might have been a Disney knock-off or possibly even an actual Disney, but I couldn't find anything like it listed. Any help would be appreciated!

  • Not 100%, but potentially the 90's remake of Escape to Witch Mountain? – Adele C Jan 8 '17 at 23:02
  • No, it's not Escape to Witch Mountain (90's version); although the feel of the movie is similar. – user76673 Jan 9 '17 at 6:08
  • The show "Girl From Tomorrow" matches some of this, but not all. – Omegacron Oct 18 '17 at 17:24

If you saw it later than you thought, you may have seen an episode (maybe a pilot?) of the 2011 series, Lightning Point.

When Zoey and Kiki, two irrepressible girls from another galaxy and world called Lumina become castaways in the quiet, Australian seaside town of Lightning Point after losing their spaceship, they recruit local girl Amber to keep them undercover. But the whole town is abuzz with the sightings of U.F.O.s, the girls soon realize that they may not be the first intergalactic visitors on planet Earth. When the time comes, can they say farewell to a world as wonderful and beautiful as their own home world Lumina?

It does feature a horse, Bandit, but the main action is actually about surfing.

  • Honestly, it's more than a bit of a stretch, but I figure it's worth venturing. – FuzzyBoots Oct 18 '17 at 17:08
