An animated adaptation of twelve of Shakespeare's best-known plays. The series was produced by S4C for the BBC, but animated by some of the foremost artists of Soyuzmultfilm, the former Soviet Union's main animation studio. Each 26-minute play is directed by a different animator, in a wide variety of styles: cel animation for Macbeth, stop-motion puppets in Twelfth Night, and paint on glass for Hamlet.Written by
The animated versions of Shakespeare's plays are in a word, divine. The character's are beautiful and extremely well made. It is easy to fall in love with the style of the 'films', and if you get the chance you should definitely watch them. It's true that it can be hard to get a hold of them, but I urge people to do their best to try. They would make a fantastic aid in introducing younger children to the world of Shakespeare, though I have found that they go down well with an older audience too. The stories stay true to the original Shakespearean plays, but with a little animated extra on top. I love them, and there are a few well known voices mixed in there as well.
