Aliens take over in the first teaser trailer for A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, the latest stop-motion feature from Aardman Animations.
The Farmageddon teaser sees long-suffering sheepdog Bitzer go off to investigate some mysterious sounds late at night, only to find Shaun and the flock being rowdy and making music. Bitzer’s frustration about his troublesome friend is cut short, however, when Shaun is suddenly taken away by a mysterious extraterrestrial force.
The new teaser comes with the following synopsis from Aardman:
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?
Directed by Aardman and Laika veterans Richard Phelan and Will Becher, Farmageddon is the sequel to the delightful 2015 Shaun the Sheep Movie, a spinoff of legendary stop-motion creator Nick Park’s claymation Wallace and Gromit series.
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon does not yet have a U.S. release date from Aardman and StudioCanal.
