A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (original title) / 2019 / animation, adventure, comedy / 1h 32min / directed by Will Becher, Richard Phelan / country: UK | France | USA

“Splitting the difference between silent cinema slapstick and the cartoon roguishness of Benny Hill, this is still the kind of old-fashioned, all-ages entertainment that Hollywood doesn’t make anymore; it’s still the kind of film in which a farm animal wears a trenchcoat and disguises himself as a tall human so that he can pay a pizza delivery man.”
David Ehrlich, IndieWire

“… As light on its feet as it is labor intensive… The ability of the Shaun films to be lighthearted is all the more unexpected when you realize how much work goes into physically manipulating the small figures one frame at a time.”
Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

What begins as an ordinary day for Shaun the Sheep (Justin Fletcher) turns out to be anything but, when an unusual creature (Amalia Vitale) from another world endures a crash landing close to Shaun’s home, Mossy Bottom Farm. When word gets out, a shady corporation vies to capture the alien creature to use her for its own gain, after it is revealed she possesses unique abilities. It is then up to Shaun to help his new friend return to her home planet before it is too late. source
