StudioCanal has set loose this new poster and trailer for ‘Shaun the Sheep the Movie,’ which lands in the UK on February 6th and in the US on April 24th. The image shows Shaun and the flock disguising themselves in the Big City, as they hope to go unnoticed whilst recreating The Beatles’ famous album cover from 1969, Abbey Road.
From Aardman, the creators of ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Chicken Run,’ comes the big screen debut of Shaun the Sheep. When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. Shaun’s mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it’s up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him.
