'Shaun the Sheep' Finds New Pastures in Animated Full UK Trailer
Our friends across the pond get a new stop-motion animated film from Aardman Animation before we do with a big screen adaptation of the small screen character Shaun the Sheep heading out on a big city adventure. And while audiences familiar with the character may think the know what to expect, there's also two new characters entering the fray: 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. I'm not sure if this will get a US release or not since the show hasn't ever been popular here, but we'll find out sometimenext year. Watch!
Here's the theatrical UK trailer for Aardman Animation's Shaun the Sheep from YouTube:
Shaun the Sheep is written and directed by Mark Burton (writer of Madagascar, Gnomeo & Juliet) and Richard Starzack, both making their directorial debut. When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home. No voice cast has been announced for the film, but StudioCanal sends the film to theaters in the United Kingdom on February 6th, 2015. Stay tuned for any info on a United States release.
