Adapted from George Orwell's satire, this full-length animated film uses animals to depict the flaws in political systems, as the animals of Manor Farm rebel against their cruel master and try to establish a prosperous new regime, only to learn that power will always corrupt.
In this animated adaptation of George Orwell's novel, pigs stage a revolution against poor sty conditions, but end up emulating the social ills of the old regime.
Lothar Wolff, Borden Mace, Philip Stapp, John Halas, and Joy Batchelor are credited with story development.
