Justin Hayward-Young, The Vaccines comments:
“We love Kylie and we love Aardman, both national treasures. Collaborating together on LAZY was an honour and a dream come true. Maybe an unlikely pairing on the face of it – but one that makes total sense in a world as wonderful and mischievous as Shaun’s.”
Joe Sugg adds:
“I have always been a huge fan of everything that Aardman have ever made, so much so, that I went to animation club as a kid. I jumped at the chance at playing a role in their new movie and am so excited to be part of it!”
Shaun the Sheep’s highly anticipated return to the big screen will herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy…
…an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA who crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure as he sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA home.
Her magical alien powers, irrepressible mischief and galactic sized burps – showcased in today’s trailer – soon have the flock enchanted.
Can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?
