War Horse is the story of a horse's (Joey) view of World War I after being sold to the cavalry. His young owner (Albert) sets off to try and bring him back. Originally published in 1982, War Horse has also been turned in to a very successful stage play. This past year it has been playing to large crowds on Broadway and was nominated for several Tony Awards.
Steven Spielberg now brings this story to the big screen. The music in this trailer, along with the sweeping landscapes, will fill your heart with such emotion that you will punch yourself in the face. I mean that in a good way. Take the jump to see.
I really do mean it in a good way. While the plot may sound silly and simple, most of the story really is of Joey's view of war. The current Broadway show really hammers that through some amazing puppetry.
Spielberg's War Horse opens this December.
