Using their woolpower, Shaun The Sheep and his flock friends are gearing up for a UK debut on February 6, 2015. Based on the popular stop-motion animated TV series that first aired on the BBC’s CBBC in 2007, and which has been sold in over 170 countries, the film hails from Studiocanal and Aardman Animations (Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run). Studiocanal financed and is releasing in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. The family film, written and directed by Richard Starzak and Mark Burton, will see the titular character and his flock venture into the big city to rescue their farmer.
