Share SPECIAL RIIFF PREMIERE: Shaun the Sheep Movie

Event Details

Shaun the sheep and his flock are determined to get a day off to relax, so they come up with a genius plan to keep Farmer sleeping through his alarm. Things go awry when Farmer gets knocked out and his trailer is sent careening down the winding road to the big city. When he finally comes to, he can’t remember anything, not where he came from and definitely not Shaun or his friends. The herd and sheepdog Bitzer set off by bus to the chaotic streets of downtown to find Farmer and bring him back home, but mix-ups and shenanigans ensue, and Bitzer and Shaun find themselves sharing a jail cell at the world’s most fearsome stray animal pound. This laugh-a-minute comedy comes from the creators of the “Shaun the Sheep” television show, which originated as a “Wallace and Gromit” spin-off. Providing impressive slapstick and a genuinely heartfelt plot, Shaun the Sheep Movie will delight both young and old. Rated PG, no dialogue.
