13th Stewart voices 'Napoleon' in TNT's 'Animal Farm'
Visit 'Animal Farm' When Robert Halmi Snr. first approached Stewart to play 'Napoleon', images of cavalry uniforms and Waterloo seemed appropriate.
However, the 'Napoleon' in question is the central character in George Orwell's novel 'Animal Farm', and is, in fact, a pig!

Next month, on October 3rd @ 8 pm (ET/PT), US TV viewers can see the premiere of this groundbreaking production, which blends the very latest technology from Jim Henson's animatronics team and live action, to produce a vivid interpretation of Orwell's story.

Joining Stewart as the voice of 'Napoleon' are fellow ex-RSC luminaries Sir Ian Holm as Squealer, Paul Scofield as 'Boxer' and, as farmer Benjamin, Pete Postlethwaite.

Visit TNT's extensive 'Animal Farm' web site to find out more about Orwell's book and this new production.
