Close Encounters of the Furred Kind
From the creators of Shaun The Sheep, Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run comes the sweet, funny and wholesome new movie A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon.
I was invited to attend a preview screening of Aardman Animation's latest movie and took my husband and almost four year old. You know it's going to be a good movie when your child starts laughing within the first few minutes and the other children in the movie theatre are quiet and clearly engrossed.
The scenes were the usual high level of imagination and quality that Aardman has come to represent and were bright, beautiful and just a bit quirky.
When strange lights appear above the town of Mossingham and a sweet little alien name Lu-La crash lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun The Sheep and his friends set off on an adventure to get Lu-La home.
When The Farmer realises he can make a profit from the alien fever hitting the town, he sets to work to open a tourist attraction on the farm - Farmageddon (keep an eye and ear out for the pop culture references throughout this movie!)
With cheesy jokes, hilarious characters and all without an actual word of English spoken, this movie is sure to appeal to fans young and old.
The movie is rated G in Australia and although there was no real violence there were a couple of scenes where my son sat on my lap for comfort but was still happy to watch.
We left humming the song and talking about our favourite scenes - who am I kidding? I'm still humming the song!
A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon opens in cinemas across Australia on 9 January 2020 and is a perfect movie to take the kids to see these school holidays.
