Astonishing life-size puppets bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life in this moving and critically acclaimed World War One story.
Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, adapted by Nick Stafford in association with the award-winning Handspring Puppet Company, the critically acclaimed and international smash-hit play War Horse returns to cinemas.
