Legendary Academy Award®-winning motion picture director/producer Steven Spielberg presents the critically acclaimed and multi Academy Award®-nominated epic adventure “War Horse ” on Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital and On-Demand, April 3. This newest home entertainment release not only enthralls viewers once again with its visually stunning and emotionally heartwarming story on the Blu-ray, but also offers an unprecedented look into the making of the film by Spielberg himself.

The extraordinary journey of courage and friendship as seen through the eyes of one unforgettable horse named Joey and his miraculous journey to find his way back home, “War Horse” is a must own contemporary classic for everyone’s home entertainment collection. Spielberg’s renowned creative passion and artistry not only shine throughout the film but are also evident in all the fascinating bonus features included exclusively on the Blu-ray disc.

 Captain Nichols Promises to Care for Joey:

War Horse is an amazing story of friendship and adventure. Due to some scenes in the movie, I would not let my 4 and 6 year old see the movie. My nephew is 11 and read the book and was super excited to see the movie! He loved it! Unfortunately while I was at the hair dresser a little old lady was taking super loudly about every movie she had recently seen and gave away the movie for me, that did not stop me from wanting to see it! This is a very emotional film, so prepare yourself and have a box or two of tissues handy.
