A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon Is A Sci-Fi Adventure
This film isn’t your average Shaun the Sheep story about the mischievous sheep who live on the farm. No, Farmageddon takes viewers into an alien themed park as Shaun the Sheep helps an alien find her way home after her ship crashes near his farm.
There is no dialogue throughout the film, but the amazing visuals and sweet friendship between Shaun the Sheep and the alien, named Lu-La, are so enthralling. Shaun the Sheep is truly a character that resonates with the inner kid inside of everyone. At least, that is what one of the film’s directors, Will Becher, told Deadline. “Everyone finds humor in the fact that this is a little sheep that lives on a farm in England, but really, is like a little boy who wants to have adventures, and have fun with his mates.”
