About Him

Overview... a renowned old boar, whose idealistic view of a free farm in which animals are autonomous is the spark for a revolution on the farm. Old Major is an inspiration, and considered something of a legend on the farm, because of his vision of a bright future and also his prize-winning popularity among the humans, which gives him a certain wisdom and ethos.

Personality… visionary, optimistic, and pure. Old Major’s ideals are simple in their utopian principles, but once the pigs Snowballs and Napoleon begin to reinterpret Old Major’s words, his legacy becomes somewhat mutated. Old Major was a jolly pig, who believed in revelry and song, as he demonstrates with his uplifting, revolutionary song, “Beasts of England.”
