We're one step closer to a brand-new version of one of Taylor Swift's Grammy-winning albums.

The trailer for new animated movie Spirit Untamed hit the internet—and came with a huge surprise for Swifties when the song "Wildest Dreams," off Taylor's 2014 album 1989, appeared in the trailer. 

The artist previously took to her Instagram Story in mid-March to share her excitement, writing, "Thank you #SpiritUntamed for using Wildest Dreams (Taylor's Version) in your new trailer!!" 

Spirit Untamed happens to star Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor's ex-boyfriend, who is rumored to be the inspiration behind one of her other heartbreaking hits, "All Too Well," off her album Red.

When fans heard a snippet of Taylor's version of "Wildest Dreams" earlier this month, they were thrilled. One tweeted, "I have CHILLS and I've only barely heard wildest dreams Taylor's version, I will not be prepared when it drops." Another added, "Hearing a snippet of Wildest Dreams (Taylor's version) MADE ME EMOTIONAL today." A third wrote, "still haven't processed how good taylors vocals sound on wildest dreams wtf i didnt think they could get any better."

Fascinating Facts About Taylor Swift

As fans know, Taylor, she's in the process of re-recording her first five albums, following a dispute over ownership of her masters with her former record label Big Machine Label Group. 

This isn't the first time Tay has teased a new recording of one of her hits prior to its official release. Last December, an updated version of "Love Story," off her album Fearless, debuted in a Match commercial created by her friend Ryan Reynolds. She officially released the track in February, and announced that the full Fearless album would arrive on April 9.
