If you do not love Aardman's often hilarious and heart warming work, you are in need of an urgent humour transplant. They have established themselves as a national cinematic treasure over the years, and although Early Man was a misstep, it was the first foot they have put wrong in over 25 years, ever since making a name for themselves with their classic Creature Comforts series.
Shaun The Sheep was a long running kids show on the BBC and they turned the feature film into a masterclass of slapstick comedy, with barely any speech (plenty of baa's though). A year ago, a teaser for Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie appeared in some cinemas but nothing has been heard since. Thankfully, it has reappeared ahead of its release next year, and you can watch the first teaser trailer for Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie above right now.
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!
Will Becher and Richard Phelan direct and it features the voices of Justin Fletcher and John Sparkes.
Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie hits UK cinemas on October 18th 2019.
