As if the folks at Aardman Animations were not busy enough putting their latest feature Early Man in to production. Yet this week the studio, alongside StudioCanal, announced that Shaun the Sheep Movie will get a sequel that begins pre-production in January.
Shaun’s journey to the big screen was a long time in the making. Seeing as Shaun was a side character in a Wallace and Gromit short A Close Shave. He proved so popular he gained his own show alongside his flock living on Mossy Bottom farm. With the success of the show Aardman decided to give Shaun his own feature film with 2015’s Shaun the Sheep Movie.
The film took Shaun and his friends on a journey to the big city to find the farmer who lost his memory. It took all the charm and with of the show but expanded to a feature project and the final result was brilliant.
As yet there are no plot details accept that the film will follow Shaun and the gang as the go on a massive fun filled adventure. Richard Starzak returns as director of the film, this time solo without Mark Burton. Also returning is producer Paul Kewley. With the same behind the scenes talent onboard the project is a lot to look forward to.
