StudioCanal has released their first full-length footage of for Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon which features a new arrival from out of space.
The upcoming film is a sequel to Shaun The Sheep Movie and is both based on Shaun the Sheep from the stop-start animated TV show of the same name. You know, the one with that really annoying theme song that you just can’t get out of your head. And if you don’t know, well search it! Trust me, it’s catchy!
Aardman saw a decent return with the first movie bringing in $100mil for them, however, their last feature Early Man was a disappointment, bringing in $54mil from a $50mil budget. Come on Shaun, you can do it!
The synopsis for the movie is below:
“Strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy… but at nearby Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun has other things on his mind, as his mischievous schemes are continually thwarted by an exasperated Bitzer.
“When an impish and adorable alien with amazing powers crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure, setting off on a mission to shepherd the intergalactic visitor home before a sinister organisation can capture her…can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?
Hold on to your seats as we blast off on an exciting and heart-warming sci-fi comedy adventure that takes us from Mossy Bottom all the way into deep space, via a car wash!”
There is no official announcement on when the movie will open in the US, but it will open in the UK on 18 October
