If you saw Ferdinand in theaters, you already know that one of the Best Animated Film Oscar nominee’s standout scenes is the dance-off between the elegant, arrogant horses and the rough-and-tumble bulls. The movie’s home release gives a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the battle, and we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek.

Choreographers Rich and Tone Talauega explain that when director Carlos Saldanha told them about the attitude of the equine “opposing crew,” it felt like the world of ballet to them — combined with vogueing, made famous by Madonna.

Among the other special features on the home release: “Ferdinand’s Guide to Healthy Living” with John Cena, who voiced the bull with a big heart; “A Goat’s Guide to Life”; “Creating the Land of Ferdinand”; “Anatomy of a Scene: The Bull Run”; “Ferdinand’s Do-It-Yourself Flower Garden”; and “Creating a Remarka-Bull Song.”

Ferdinand arrives on digital Feb. 27, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD March 13.
