Nick Park created Shaun the Sheep for his Wallace and Gromit shorts, and the character was originally seen in A Close Shave. Since then, Shaun has gone on to star in over 100 short episodes of his own Aardman Animation stop-motion animated television show. Now he’s got his own movie, written and directed by Mark Burton (Madagascar and Gnomeo & Juliet writer) and Richard Starzack. We don’t know what plans exist for a US release of the film, but Aardman fans should check out the Shaun the Sheep teaser trailer below.
Shaun the Sheep: The Movie is currently in Production at Aardman Studios in Bristol and will open in UK Cinemas on February 6 2015. Trailer via YouTube.
