One of Charles Dickens' greatest novels is once again adapted for the screen in this animated drama for the whole family. Pip is a young orphan who seems cursed to live a life of dire poverty and little opportunity until he encounters a runaway convict and an eccentric old woman named Mrs. Havisham. A nameless benefactor bestows a fortune upon Pip allowing him to attend school and live the life of a gentleman, but Pip soon learns that his new position in life presents its own set of problems.
