SHAUN THE SHEEP Headed To The Big Screen

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Initially a spin off from the popular - and Oscar winning - stop motion animated Wallace And Gromit series of short films, Shaun the Sheep has gone on to become arguably the biggest title in the Aardman Animation catalog. Shaun is now the star of his own long running television series, has spawned a spin off series of his own (Timmy Time) and is now following his predecessors on the the big screen.

Yep, Shaun is getting a feature film of his own, one in which Shaun's antics lead to their farm home being lost and Shaun needing to trek to the big city to save their Farmer and their home. Richard Starzak and Mark Burton will write and direct with Aardman producing and financial backing from Studio Canal.  That last bit is surprising as last time we checked Aardman was still in an exclusive deal with Sony - who backed their Pirates! A Band Of Misfits! - and this would indicate someone has ended that deal.

    NOOOOOOO....should have been Rex the Runt(1998–2001) instead....oh well......anything new from Aardman is welcomed.

    "who backed their Pirates! A Band Of Misfits!"

    Still haven´t seen that one, but Studio Canal sounds like the right partner for them.
    Thanks Mr Brown.
