Storyline

Plot Summary

A satire of Stalinist Russia, Animal Farm tells of the revolt of the animals of Manor Farm against their human masters. Led by the pigs Snowball (Trotsky) and Napoleon (Stalin), the animals attempt to create a utopian society. Soon, however, Napoleon gets a taste for power, drives out Snowball, and establishes a totalitarian regime as brutal and corrupt as any human society. Manor Farm becomes a world where all animals are equal--but some are more equal than others. Written by David Rickard

Trivia In a revised first draft of the script, co-Writer Martyn Burke had Jessie set to be a six-month-old male Border Collie. This idea was later dropped, and Jessie was made an adult female instead, to give the audiences more sympathy for the main character. See more »
