Peek offstage at the War Horse puppets

War Horse has captured theatre audiences and moviegoers.

The storyline, scenery, and special effects add to the adventure in Steven Spielberg’s 2011 film adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 novel about a remarkable horse (known as Joey) during World War I.

But for the live stage performances on Broadway and in other locations, the real stars of the War Horse show are the giant horse puppets. These hand-crafted horse puppets take three puppeteers to operate.

Wanna know what the War Horse puppets look like up close and how they work? Catch this insider's look, in case you may have missed it.

Here’s an offstage video (from WIRED Magazine via YouTube) about the War Horse puppets:


If you haven’t seen War Horse onstage, several tour performances of the hit Broadway play are still ongoing, with dates in North America and elsewhere.
