Watch Out Lion King!

Based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse is a story of a young man and his beloved horse. I was intrigued by the article about this show in the NY Times today and had to know more about it. It's a combination of a touching story and artistic puppetry! Just check out the video above. I've heard that it might come to Broadway in the 2011 season. I can't wait!

From the press release it states:

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home. Actors, working with astonishing, life-sized puppets, lead us on this emotionally-charged journey through history.
