Film details

Cast & Credits


Animation. Oppressed by cruel, drunken Farmer Jones, the animals of Manor Farm, led by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, evict him and set up a republic. Soon Napoleon ousts Snowball and savagely crushes a revolt against his leadership using dogs. Conditions steadily decline for all the animals other than the pigs, who increasingly resemble humans, until the animals, with help from the other farms, drive out Napoleon and his cronies.
