Heart-Wrenching Animation Shows Endangered Animals Singing ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ From Les Misérables

In a painful yet beautiful animated short, we see four animals singing the famous ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ song from Les Misérables, as their very existences are threatened by manmade disasters, and violent poaching and hunting.  Created for the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival in 2016, the video has been making the rounds recently, and it’s even more relevant than ever, sadly.

We start by seeing the animals in their natural habitat, followed by the onslaught of poachers and whalers, who kill the animals, as the song grows more and more despairing.

The award-winning short, Dream, should get everyone’s attention, for its message and its beauty. Created by Zombie Studio, based in São Paulo.  Via MyModernMet:
