After the huge success of Shaun the Sheep the Movie, Aardman has just revealed the first look image from Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas, the first ever Shaun the Sheep thirty-minute special which is due to air on BBC One at Christmas.
The stop-frame special will chronicle another of family favourite Shaun the Sheep’s adventures, and introduce hilarious new characters to the Aardman family, including a pack of mischievous llamas: Hector, Fernando and Raul in a comedy Llama Drama.
On Monday 26th October The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry visit charities forum event hosted by BAFTA & Aardman where the World Premiere of Shaun The Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas will be presented.
Created by Richard Starzak and directed by Jay Grace, Shaun The Sheeps: The Farmer’s Llamas will continue Aardman’s heritage of festive specials on the BBC.
When the Farmer and Bitzer go to a Country Fair, Shaun steals away with them intent on causing mischief. Shaun spies an auction where he sees three exotic and very crafty Llamas going under the hammer. Instantly besotted by their fantastic pranks Shaun cleverly gets the unwitting Farmer to buy them.
Back at Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun is delighted with his prank and convinces the Flock that the Llamas are just what they need to spice up their lives. At first everything’s great fun, but soon their new Llama room-mates get a bit too comfortable in their new home.
When things spiral out of control, Shaun is forced to take action to oust the intruders and save the farm.
