The trailer has arrived for Shaun the Sheep’s next big screen adventure.
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon finds our titular charismatic farm animal in for an out-of-this-world adventure when an impish alien called LU-LU crash-lands near the Mossy Bottom Farm. A mission to return this powered alien home unfolds, with a sinister alien-hunting agency on their trail.
Aardman Animations studios have consistently provided fun, charming family films, not to mention the jaw-dropping stop-motion animation itself. While the voice over is a little dry in the trailer below, it does suggest yet another enjoyable crowd-pleaser from the studio that brought us Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run. Directed by Will Becher (Shaun the Sheep series) and Richard Phelan.
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon will be hitting the US on December 13 and arrives in Australia on January 9, 2020.
Official synopsis for A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon:
Strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy… When the intergalactic visitor – an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA – crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure and sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA home.
Her magical alien powers, irrepressible mischief and galactic sized burps soon have the flock enchanted. Shaun takes his new extra-terrestrial friend on the road to Mossingham Forest to find her lost spaceship, unaware that a sinister alien-hunting agency is on their trail. Can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?
