A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon
Producer Paul Kewley is expected to attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A and meet-and-greet along with special puppet guests.
Strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy…For Shaun the Sheep’s second feature-length movie, the follow-up to 2015’s smash hit Shaun the Sheep Movie, A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon takes the world’s favorite woolly hero and plunges him into an hilarious intergalactic adventure he will need to use all of his cheekiness and heart to work his way out of. When a visitor from beyond the stars—an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA—crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure, and sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA back to her home. Her magical alien powers, irrepressible mischief and galactic sized burps soon have the flock enchanted and Shaun takes his new extra-terrestrial friend on a road-trip to Mossingham Forest to find her lost spaceship. The latest from four-time Academy Award-winning Aardman Animations studio, creators of Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Creature Comforts, Chicken Run and Early Man.
This special event, hosted by SFFILM Education under its Family Programming initiative, is free and open to the public. Advance RSVP is required.
Audience members will have a chance to participate in a Q&A and can see puppets from the film up close during the meet-and-greet session afterwards. Kids in attendance will also be eligible to win special Aardman Animations raffle prizes.
Recommended for ages 5 and up.
