We've all heard of it and some of us have been lucky enough to see the fantastic theatre production of War Horse.

The story of War Horse continues as it is now going to be made into a film and will be produced by a team that includes the great Steven Speilberg.

The film will be based on the book by Michael Morpurgo that follows the life of a horse called Joey who is sold to the British cavalry during World War I. The story follows Joey as he serves on the frontline. Albert, Joey's owner when he was a foal is lost without his faithful friend and sets off to rescue Joey.

It's unlikely we will see the amazing puppets used in the play, but we still think this will make a great film and can't wait to see it.
