I love everything from Aardman Animations, the producers behind “Chicken Run” and “Wallace & Gromit,” so I was pretty excited when I heard they were making a “Shaun the Sheep” movie. It was released in theaters in August, and I loved it. Check out my review here (I gave it 4.5 out of 5 Reels).
I love that signature Aardman animation, the quirky characters, and the smart writing that doesn’t talk down to kids.
“Shaun the Sheep Movie” is heading to Digital HD tomorrow, Nov. 10, and will arrive on Blu-Ray Combo Pack (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on Nov. 24.
The farm-tastic movie from Lionsgate Home Entertainment is perfect for the whole family this holiday season. Rolling Stone called it a “world-class winner,” and it scored 99 percent Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and was the #1 movie on their Summer Movie Score Card for 2015.
The story follows Shaun, a little sheep with big dreams, but lately, life on Mossy Bottom Farm has become a bit dull. When Shaun takes the day off for some fun in the Big City, he gets a lot more action than he bargained for. Now Shaun and his flock must use their wits to hatch a baaaa-rilliant plan to get back home in an adventure the whole family will love.
The “Shaun the Sheep Movie” home entertainment release comes loaded with bonus features including a fascinating look behind-the-scenes of the making of the film, as well as interviews with the cast and crew. The Blu-Ray™ combo pack (plus Digital) and DVD (plus Digital) will be available for $34.99 and $29.95, respectively.
