Bristol, London, April 1st 2019: AARDMAN and STUDIOCANAL today launch a brand-new trailer, poster and stills for SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE: FARMAGEDDON, introducing an enchanting, new character in Shaun’s latest and biggest adventure yet.
Strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy…
When the intergalactic visitor – an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA – crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure and sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA home.
Her magical alien powers, irrepressible mischief and galactic sized burps soon have the flock enchanted. Shaun takes his new extra-terrestrial friend on the road to Mossingham Forest to find her lost spaceship, unaware that a sinister alien-hunting agency is on their trail.
Can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?
