Here’s a first teaser trailer for Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, the sequel to Aardman and Studiocanal’s 2015 box office hit which took more than $100M global. In the sequel, strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy, while at nearby Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun’s mischievous schemes are continually thwarted by exasperated farmer Bitzer. ‘It’s close encounters of the herd kind’, says the production.
Studiocanal is co-financing and will distribute in its own territories, the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand in autumn 2019. Directors are Richard Phelan and Will Becher; writers are Jon Brown and Mark Burton; producer is Paul Kewley; executive producers are Mark Burton and Richard Starzak, Peter Lord, Nick Park and David Sproxton.
