The quiet town of Mossingham is overdue for some excitement. Strange lights descend, heralding the arrival of a mysterious visitor from far across the galaxy. It turns out to be LU-LA, an adorable young alien who has accidentally landed on earth, through misadventure.
From the creators of Chicken Run, Lu-La and her galactic sized burps and cute demeanour will work at enchanting you in this story of close encounters of the furry kind. Shaun takes his newfound extra-terrestrial friend under his wing so to speak, and works at getting her home before a sinister alien-hunting agency's formidable Agent Red and her bunch of hapless, hazmat-suited goons gets to her first. It's a race to the lost spaceship before it's too late.
An adventure that's out of this world and Shaun the Sheep's second feature-length movie, if you loved the first one you can safely bet you're going to love this one too. Justin Fletcher returns as the voice of Shaun along with John Sparkes as the voice of The Farmer/Bitzer and Chris Morrell - Farmer John (voice). The voice of the formidable Agent Red belongs to Kate Harbour and cute lil Lu-La, Amalia Vitale.
The filmmakers have pushed the character to places he had never been in an encounter of the sci-fi genre. This time Shaun has to be the sensible one, something he's never had to do before. He has to grow up and look after Lu-la. It's a valuable story for the kids about responsibility of relationships, without uttering an intelligible word. Now that's magic.
Filled with cliches and homages to many classic Sci-fi films of the past, see how many you the adults can spot without reading them on imdb. Take the whole family to see this charming film where Shaun is almost a silent movie star with a big heart. He's a flawed character, but in an innocent way. He just simply doesn't like to do what he's told, and we can all relate to that.
