Macbeth….animated

http://youtu.be/LC9G_CZVAL8

I chose this video because I thought a cartoon version of Macbeth would be fun to watch. It actually turned out to be pretty great. I think turning Macbeth into a cartoon is a fabulous was to entice young people, especially those in middle school or high school. The simple fact that it’s animated makes it more intriguing. I remember being in high school and seeing an old film that the teacher would put on and saying to myself “ugggggh not again”. This is a version that will make younger crowd more apt to wanting to read Shakespeare. I’m going to continue looking to see if there are any other Shakespeare plays that have been animated in this way.
