'War Horse' Bonus Clip: How One of the Horses Upstaged the Actors on Set (Exclusive)

Mar 22, 2012

For the War Horse DVD/Blu-ray, which hits stores on April 3rd, they include this really fun roundtable discussion between director Steven Spielberg, producer Kathleen Kennedy and some of the actors and actresses from the film. In this exclusive clip, watch as one of the horses playing Joey upstages the actors during an emotionally-charged scene by trying to have a bit of fun with Peter Mullan (Ted Narracott). In the clip, Spielberg admits the horse's gestures weren't planned, while Emily Watson chimes in saying she thinks the horse was trying to lighten what was already a pretty intense scene.

Check out the clip below, then read on for more of what to expect from the War Horse DVD/Blu-ray.
