The creatures on Manor Farm can no longer endure the cruelty of their negligent owner, Mr. Jones. Napoleon the  boar decides that if the farm is to be run  safely and become prosperous, then a revolt against the humans is in order. “Four legs good, two legs bad!” is the battle cry and with the help of the carthorse Boxer and Sheepdog Jessie, Jones and his wife are run off the property. For a time, the newly christened Animal Farm is under control – a little too much under the control of one particular pig.  Napoleon’s tyranny creeps into Animal Farm – should they escape, or is another rebellion in order? The resilient comrades are prepared to rise against Napoleon and turn Animal Farm into the harmonious paradise they long to share.  George Orwell’s classic fable brought to life by the magic of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and featuring the voices of Kelsey Grammer, Ian Holm, Pete Postlethwaite, Paul Schofield, Patrick Stewart, Julia Ormond and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
