Animal Farm (1954)
Set of Five Production Cels
The first full length animated feature film to be made in The UK, an adaptation of George Orwell's 'Animal Farm', was produced by husband and wife team, John Halas & Joy Batchelor. Their previous work included government-funded wartime propaganda shorts for the UK and USA, and Animal Farm is widely thought to have been funded by the CIA as part of their anti-communism efforts during 'The Second Red Scare' of the 1950s. It would be 14 years until the next animated feature film, The Yellow Submarine, was made in Great Britain.
