SHAUN THE SHEEP THE MOVIE is an upcoming British stop-motion animated adventure comedy film produced by Aardman Animations, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run. It is written and directed by Mark Burton (Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit) and Richard Starzak, based on the character first seen in Nick Park’s Oscar-winning Wallace and Gromit short film A Close Shave.
When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for! Shaun’s mischief inadvertently leads to The Farmer being taken away from the farm, to the Big City…
Join Shaun, Bitzer and The Flock on their hilarious, action-packed, big screen adventure as they make plans to rescue the missing Farmer. A story about how we sometimes forget to appreciate the things we have in life, and the people who love us. The film introduces us to two new Aardman characters; Trumper, the animal warden who rules the city’s animal shelter with a rod of iron and Slip, an inner city orphan dog who helps Shaun save the day.
