A brand new trailer for Aardman’s sequel to Shaun The Sheep, subtitled Farmageddon, is set to land in the coming days – having been rated by the UK’s BBFC. The classification board notes a release date of this coming Friday, likely meaning that it hits UK cinemas on that date with Tim Burton’s Dumbo alongside other animated trailers such as tomorrow’s Angry Birds 2 one and DreamWorks’ Abominable, so we expect it online before then. We will have the new look here as soon as it drops!
It’s close encounters of the herd kind in Shaun’s new out of this world movie. Strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy… but at nearby Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun has other things on his mind, as his mischievous schemes are continually thwarted by an exasperated Bitzer. When an impish and adorable alien with amazing powers crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure, setting off on a mission to shepherd the intergalactic visitor home before a sinister organisation can capture her…can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late? Hold on to your seats as we blast off on an exciting and heart-warming sci-fi comedy adventure that takes us from Mossy Bottom all the way into deep space, via a car wash!
The film is released in the UK on October 18 with a U.S. date to be announced.
