I thought the book was based on the past anyway? Or the current, depending on when it was made.

Interesting fact: The CIA funded the British made animation of the book.
...and changed the ending.
To meet the CIA's objectives, the ending was changed to show that only the pigs had become totally corrupt. The film ends with other animals mounting a successful revolt against their rulers. There is no mention of the humans in the film's conclusion.
