Storyboard Text

  • The pigs become the government, and Napoleon becomes the dictator.
  • Napoleon creates a false image of societal improvement.
  • We've grown three times as much grain this year as the humans did six years ago, and that's actually the most grain that's ever been grown on our dear farm, my comrades! You should all be proud of yourselves! And in other news of the caliber we also have grown about three more acres of corn than the humans, more beans, more greens, more potatoes, more tomatoes, you name it! I think that in a situation like this, we have great cause to celebrate joyously, my comrades! We've also grown ten times as many pumpkins this year as the humans did seven years ago, and that's also the most pumpkins that have ever been grown on our farm! Am I repeating myself, comrades? It doesn't really matter. Anyway, moving forward and advancing in the conversation, comrades! We've made a lot of money from our crops, thanks to our hard work! And speaking of work, I'd like to commend Boxer for his outstanding work ethic and incredible devotion to this farm! Anyway, as I was saying, with all of this money, we will perhaps be able to trade with the humans - apprehensively, my comrades, apprehensively - and finally be able to finish the windmill! This brings me great joy, and I think that we have great cause to celebrate even more! Never forget how proud I am of you, comrades! Keep marching on, my comrades! Always abide by the Seven Commandments, never falter in your following! And remember this: All animals are equal, all men are enemies, four legs good, two legs bad! Wait, and in other news of the caliber we also have grown about three more acres of corn than the humans, more beans, more greens, more potatoes, more tomatoes, you name it! I think that in a situation like this, we have great cause to celebrate joyously, my comrades! We've grown three times as much grain this
  • The government posts the Seven Commandments.
  • 1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. 2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend. 3. No animal shall wear clothes. 4. No animal shall sleep in a bed. 5. No animal shall drink alcohol. 6. No animal shall kill any other animal. 7. All animals are equal.
  • The Seven Commandments
  • The animals adopt slogans such as "All animals are equal," "All men are enemies," and "Four legs good, two legs bad!" With easy-to-remember mantras such as these, the pigs try to maintain a "perfect" human-free world, and keep the other animals' thoughts on humans negative.
  • The Seven Commandments are an allusion to...
  • The Seven Commandments
  • In attempts to convince the animals that things are better under his rule than the humans'. This actually isn't true. Napoleon gives the animals false statistics of how much more money they're making than the humans ever made. Whether they are working harder for the pigs than the humans is debatable, but it's certain that they're getting less food.
  • The events of the animals' everyday lives are an allusion to...
  • The animals, although it was mostly the pigs, agreed upon the Seven Commandments. They were set as holy laws to be abided by without exception, but their "holy, unchanging" status changes. Overnight, new words are secretly added on to the existing Commandments, changed by the pigs to suit what they don't agree with in the rules.
  • The name of the dictatorial pig, Napoleon, is a thinly veiled allusion to...
  • ...the Ten Commandments in the Bible. The Ten Commandments and the Seven Commandments in principal are the same: unchanging, holy rules to live your life by. The only difference is that the Seven Commandments are changed overnight to suit the pigs' need and they aren't really holy.
  • HOLY BIBLE
  • ...people living under a dictator. The animals are overworked. They don't voice their concerns and speak out against the pigs' wickedness. There are vicious dogs trained to kill roaming everywhere. The animals were ripped apart by these dogs after being forced to confess to crimes they hadn't committed.
  • ...Napoleon Bonaparte. It is often debated whether Napoleon was a tyrant or a blessing, and the animals could have had this same debate about their Napoleon. Both Napoleons have done good and bad, but whether it was enough good to outweigh the bad in the end is a question that can't really be answered.
