Aardman and StudioCanal are about to unleash Nick Park’s Early Man at UK cinemas – where it arrives this Friday. And just ahead of the new film’s release, the BBFC have today rated the first look at the acclaimed animation studio’s next project: Shaun the Sheep 2, which marks Aardman’s first sequel.
There is absolutely zero doubt that it’s set to play from Friday here in the UK with Early Man (hence the 26th of January release date on the classification); expect it online at some point in the coming days. (h/t @JensenColeman1)
Pitched as “Shaun the Sheep” in “Farmageddon,” the animated feature follows the adventure of Shaun and the flock facing an alien invasion.
Directed by Richard Starzak, the film is released on April 5, 2019 in the UK, with a U.S. date to be announced.
