Netflix has signed a deal with Aardman Animation for a festive short film which will be released ahead of Christmas 2020.
Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep is heading back to the big screen.
The company has announced plans for Shaun the Sheep 2, a sequel to the 2015 cinematic debut for Shaun and the gang.
Tom Hiddleston has joined Eddie Redmayne in the new animated adventure from the creator of Wallace and Gromit.
Eddie Redmayne is voicing the lead role in the new animated film from Aardman Animation.
The new Shaun The Sheep movie has been selected to screen as part of the Children’s Strand at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
The screening will mark the film’s US debut and it’s rare to see a British animation picked for the festival founded by Robert Redford.
I love the idea of such a British film playing in the snowy depths of Utah to bemused Hollywood execs.
Meanwhile a new poster for the film has been released – as you can see above.
The Shaun the Sheep Movie will be in UK cinemas on February 6.
