“War Horse” London Premier to Benefit Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry


BURBANK, CALIF. (December 22, 2011)–DreamWorks Pictures announced today that the premiere of its latest film “War Horse,” directed by Steven Spielberg, on Sunday, January 8, 2012, at the Odeon Leicester Square, London, will benefit the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be in attendance.

The Duke and Duchess will greet members of the cast and Director Steven Spielberg before watching the film. Six hundred serving and ex-serving military personnel and their families have been invited to the Premiere, alongside beneficiaries of military charities, which the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry helps to support. The servicemen and women have been invited from The Duke of Cambridge’s regiments, including RAF Search and Rescue, Household Cavalry, Irish Guards, Royal Air Force Coningsby, Scotland Royal Naval Command and Submarines Royal Naval Command.

“War Horse,” which opens in theatres in the U.S. on December 25th, is the epic tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. Based on the best-selling book by Michael Morpurgo and the Tony Award®–winning stage play by Nick Stafford, “War Horse” is one of the great stories of bravery and friendship, brought to the screen by one of the greatest directors in film history.





The story begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land. The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse—an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure.

Directed by Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Pictures’ “War Horse” stars Emily Watson, David Thewlis, Peter Mullan, Niels Arestrup, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irvine, Benedict Cumberbatch and Toby Kebbell. It is produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, and executive producers are Frank Marshall and Revel Guest. The screenplay was written by Lee Hall and Richard Curtis and is based on the book by Michael Morpurgo and the international hit stage play by Nick Stafford, originally produced by the National Theatre of Great Britain and directed by Tom Morris and Marianne Elliot.

Burton Star Wars Experience Snowboard Park

The 2,000 acre Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort, which lies just outside of South Lake Tahoe in California, will soon be home to the Burton Star Wars Experience, the first snowboard park in the world that features iconic Star Wars themes to introduce children as young as three to snowboarding.

Opening this winter season, The Burton Star Wars Experience will combine Burton's industry-leading Learn To Ride hardgoods, teaching systems and Riglet Park features with Jedi Master Yoda's methods of balance, movement, and control. At the Burton Star Wars Experience, kids as young as three can learn to snowboard with the help of Burton's Riglet Reel, a specially designed reel attached to the nose of youth snowboards. Thanks to the Riglet Reel, coaches can tow kids on their snowboards so they quickly learn how to balance, move and control their boards. Riglet Reel technology combined with Burton's Riglet Park and Learn To Ride boards, boots, and bindings enhance and expedite the snowboarding process.

"We are thrilled to take our relationship with Burton, the world's leading snowboard company, to the next level," says John Rice, General Manager at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort Sierra. "Star Wars and Burton are filling a void for youth in snow sports and at the same time building on our legendary Learn To Ride program. There is nothing like it in the world."

The Burton Star Wars Experience at Sierra Resort is a full-day experience and will include the Burton Riglet Reel technology equipment rental, lunch, and plenty of interaction with Yoda and the other Jedi Knights for just $135/day. A "3-Pak" brings the price down to $81/day and is valid any day, all season long with no blackout dates.
