Aardman, the studio behind such greats as Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run have been weaving their signature stop motion magic in a new project entitled Shaun The Sheep.
Ahead of the film's arrival in cinemas in February 2015, a promo trailer and plot synopsis have been released. The synopsis reads as follows:
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. Shaun the Sheep The Movie 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.
