After they overthrow their owner, the pigs start taking over the farm and taking control over all the other animals in the farm. Old Major was one of the oldest pigs in the farm. He was a very smart pig. He would tell the other animals how they were suppose to be living, how they were suppose to be getting treated and how they were suppose to get rid of their owner. One day Old Major was going to tell the animals what they must do and Old Major dies.
The animals drive the owner off the farm and take over. The pigs who were the smartest animals took control, set up rules, and kept the farm together.Throughout the years on the farm the pigs lie to the other animals about, if they work hard, all the luxuries they would receive.
Napoleon figures out a way to get Snowball kicked out of the farm so he can be the leader himself. Napoleon is a back-stabbing traitor. He becomes just like the humans and dominates over the other animals. Napoleon breaks the laws but since he has the other animals in such a strong hold they do not seem to care. Napoleon is the evil character in this novel.
The two main leader pigs, Napoleon and Snowball both honor Major’s beliefs but want to achieve the goals in different ways. Napoleon focuses on the advantages he can gain for himself; Snowball wants to help all the animals of the farm. These different paths of power start to cause division on the farm. In Chapter 5, Snowball finally gives up and runs away from the farm, leaving Napoleon the leader and motivator of the newly named Animal Farm. He declares that only the pigs have the power to make decisions for the farm and that all the other animals will obey them.
He talks to them about their situation at the farm and the problems they have to endure. He leads them to believe that their biggest problem is “the man”, and how “the man” uses them to satisfy his own needs without giving a thought to theirs. The animals begin to make plans to revolt against “the man” and take control of their own lives. A few days after the meeting though, Old Major dies. This is the beginning of a whole new set of problems for the animals when two other pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, take charge of the revolt against man.
Napoleon, was a shrewd pig who could see that he could not carry on working with Snowball. This was shown when the two of them could not agree on the building of a windmill.When it looked as though Snowball might win the arguement, Napoleon "uttered a high-pitched whimper of a kind no one had ever heard him utter before" and the vicious dogs ran in and attacked Snowball and ran him off the farm. Eventually Napoloeon won and the windmill was built, and soon after Napoleon ran Snowball off the farm. In order to make sure that he would stay leader in the future, Napoleon told the animals that Snowball was against them and was friendly with the old farm owner, Mr.Jones. The similarity between Napoleon and Joseph Stalin (the Russian leader), is very clear.
The cartoon Animal Farm is an animation based off the novel by George Orwell. It is about animals that live on a farm who are unhappy with how they are being treated by the farmer, Mr. Jones. They stage an uprising and run him off the property. The animals do well in organizing and running their own farm and being independent until Mr. Jones gathers fellow farmers to take back his land and animals. After the battle (which the animals won), The animals’ government system takes a turn for the worse.
Right after his death the two pigs, Snowball and Napoleon take command of the farm and start preparations for the rebellion. A day comes when they can’t stand the irresponsible owner of the farm Mr Jones and his lack of concern about their feeding anymore so they run him out of the farm. From now on the pigs rule the farm which they rename to “Animal Farm”. The Seven Commandments are written down with all the new rules. The most significant is: “All animals are equal”.
Jones and his men came out to fight them off, but the animals were to strong for them. The animals drove them out of the farm and declared what used to be called “The Manor Farm” into what they called “Animal Farm.” Snowball took over as their new leader and served them good especially when Jones came back with some men and guns and tried to take back his farm and Snowball took control and stopped Jones from winning the fight. Then Snowball gets an idea that they should build a windmill that symbolizes their farm and could be used for hay storage. Napoleon, another pig who wanted to take rule, said that was a stupid idea and Napoleon went on to plant fake evidence that Snowball
All animals at this point realize that they have been nothing to humans but subject to extremely strict and tremendous harsh treatment and they all want to have a rebellion for a more better and equal society. Later, the animals found the owner of the farm Mr. Jones drunk, so they took the opportunity to ram sack the food supply and when the animals heard the Men coming they attacked them and scared them off. That’s when the animals had full control and they b... ... middle of paper ... ...he beginning the pigs start out as animals who have no more power than any other animal on the farm, and they all have the same ideas. The animals create order and freedom, and then happiness is no longer enough. Shortly after, Napoleon takes the spot light and takes charge along with the other pigs.
