Aardman and StudioCanal have announced that they are once again teaming on a sequel to the Oscar-nominated animated feature “Shaun the Sheep Movie”.
No word on a potential storyline or release date as yet. David Sproxton, Aardman’s co-founder and executive chairman, said in a statement:
“Shaun’s move to the big screen proved such a success with audiences around the world that he and the flock are very excited to be embarking on another big-screen adventure. Aardman is partnering with Studiocanal once again to produce another rip-roaring comedy, featuring Shaun and the rest of the gang in a story that takes them to even greater heights of lunacy.”
The first film scored rave critical reviews and grossed $106 million worldwide. Richard Starzak will return as director, Paul Kewley is back as producer and pre-production will start in January.
