Animal Farm (Movie) Vs. Animal Farm (Book)
Essay, Research Paper
Like all books, Animal Farm, the book, is different from Animal Farm,
the movie. One of the reasons is the characters. Some of the characters
that were in the book were not in the movie. Those were characters like
Mr. Whymper, Clover, and Mollie (who was only shown in part of the
movie). In the movie, Jessie, the dog that was only mentioned in the
first chapter, replaced Clover. Jessie narrated the story, was the main
character, and was in the story the entire time.
Some of the events that were in the book were not shown or did not happen
in the movie. These were events like the bank note forgeries and some
of the things that Squealer said to them like how he convinced them
to let the pigs use the apples and milk in their mash. They did not
even mention this event in the story. Other things that they did not
even mention in the movie were the Sunday meetings and something they
didn?t mention in the book was Napoleon?s addiction to whiskey. One of
the main events in the book that were not shown in the movie was the
battle where Boxer split his hoof. The only two battles that happened
were the Rebellion and the Battle of Cowshed. One event that happened in
the movie that did not happen in the book was when Squealer took Jones?
camera equipment and used it to speak to the animals.
Another different thing about the story was when the events took
place. They showed the pigs walking on their hind legs after they showed
when Jessie couldn?t tell the difference between the humans and the pigs.
One of the last things that were different about the movie was the
ending. It didn?t end with Jessie not being able to tell the difference
between the humans and the pigs. After that, Jessie took Benjamin and a
few other animals with her to escape. They came back a few years later
after Napoleon died. The farm?s new owners were coming and Jessie and
her puppies came to live on the farm again.
