Shaun The Sheep trailer arrives

4 April 2014

B-aardman returns. 

Aardman Animation are back in action at last. Two years after garnering critical and commercial success with The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!, the studio have released a hilarious teaser trailer for their next stop-motion affair. 

Shaun the Sheep is a spin-off from Aardman's biggest franchise, Wallace & Gromit, and centres on the eponymous ovine, who, according to the official synopsis, "decides to take the day off and have some fun, but he gets a little more than he bargained for. 

"Shaun’s mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it’s up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him."

Check out the trailer and poster below and expect to see it in cinemas in… 2015. Sigh.
