* AdaptationalKarma / AdaptationalAlternateEnding: The book [[DownerEnding ended as badly as the real life events its based on]], while the 1954 animated movie changes it to a more uplifting ending where the animals revolt against their new overlords. The 1999 live-action movie is this through expanding on the real life basis and showing Napoleon's empire eventually collapse.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: In-Universe, the rival human farmers were expecting the whole thing of the farm run by animals to collapse in no time. Played with in both film adaptations, where it does ultimately.

** In the book, the farm is titled Manor Farm while Jones runs it. The animals rename it Animal Farm after the uprising. After Napoleon's corruption and hypocrisy is complete, the farm is renamed Manor Farm again.

When at last the pigs unveil "All animals are equal, [[FantasticRacism But some are more equal than others]]." do the disillusioned workers, unable to bare any further humiliation and loss of liberty, ''[[ThisIsUnforgivable finally snap]]''.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Animal Farm is a cautionary tale. Revolt to remove a hated tyrant, you won't change the world - you will merely take that tyrant's place, and possibly become ''even worse''.

* HumansAreSpecial: The pigs send forth the pigeons to announce the coming of the revolution to all the other farms. Animals that were well looked after and loved by their caretakers were ''utterly mortified'' to heed the call. Others that were [[HumansAreBastards mistreated and abused, listened on with intrigue]].


Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsUnforgivable: When word gets out about the utter disaster Animal Farm has become, what the pigs are doing and their plan to spread their totalitarian ideology across the world, the animals of the other farms, regardless of their own welfare, '''are completely infuriated'''. They rise up, joining forces to become an army the world has never seen the like of, [[CurbStompBattle and completely crush them in the ending]].

A live action version, starring Creator/PatrickStewart as the voice of Napoleon and KelseyGrammer as Snowball, was produced in 1999. A stage adaptation, drawing heavily from another Orwell classic, ''Literature/HomageToCatalonia'', was first produced in 2008. Creator/AndySerkis is going to direct a new film version using SerkisFolk.

* ChekhovsArmy: The dogs in the live action film. They first get mentioned as Napoleon taking Jessie's pups to rear and educate. Then they appear just when Napoleon needs their muscle as huge, powerful, vicious dogs.

** In the 1999 live action adaptation, the pigs meet a more ambiguous end, the farm showing to have just fallen apart from Napoleon's despotic rule (much like the Soviet Union had by this time).

* {{Disneyfication}}: Both the animated adaptation and the live action adaptation changed the ending to be more uplifting. The live action version was made after the Soviet Union collapsed, making it one of the more justified uses.

** The live action adaptation also makes clear that Napoleon's rule fell apart after a short time (mirroring the Soviet Union by the time this adaptation was made). How this occurred and what became of the pigs is not shown, it merely implied the whole empire self destructed from the pigs' incompetence and self indulgence.
