Shaun the Sheep Movie

The British stop-motion animated television series gets its own movie when a little farmyard tomfoolery leads to the Farmer (John Sparkes) getting lost in the big city with a nasty case of amnesia. So it falls on Shaun (Justin Fletcher) the sheep and the rest of his flock to find their missing friend and bring him home.

Shaun the Sheep Movie is a throwback screwball comedy as Shaun and his friends scour the city for the Farmer in ridiculous costumes, cause a break-out of an animal control center, and generally cause all kinds of mischief wherever they go. Completely dialogue free, the movie's humor doesn't miss a beat or need to rely on any form of exposition to tell its story. Marvelously animated, the film is a joy to behold.

Available on DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray, extras include a digital copy of the film, a parody poster gallery, and short featurettes on the making of the film, the animator and crew, and its cast of characters.

[DVD $29.95 / Blu-ray $34.99]
