A Shaun the Sheep Movie Farmageddon 2019 poster 3.jpg

A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon is a 2019 British stop-motion animated science fiction comedy film produced by Aardman Animations. The film is directed by Richard Phelan and Will Becher (in their feature directorial debuts) and written by Mark Burton and Jon Brown, based on an idea by Richard Starzak. It is a stand-alone sequel to Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) and is based on the claymation television series Shaun the Sheep, a spinoff from the Wallace and Gromit short film A Close Shave. The film stars Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes, Kate Harbour, and Rich Webber reprising their voice roles from the series and the previous film, whilst new cast members include Amalia Vitale, David Holt and Chris Morrell. In the film, Shaun and the flock encounter a cute alien with extraordinary powers, who crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm. They have to find a way to return her home in order to prevent her falling into the hands of the Ministry for Alien Detection.

Plans for a sequel began in 2015, following the release of the first film. The film officially began production following the end of production on Early Man (2018). Richard Starzak was announced to return as director, however, in November 2018, the film was later announced to be directed by Becher and Phelan.

A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon was released in theaters on October 18, 2019 in the United Kingdom, and on Netflix in the United States on February 14, 2020. The film made $43.1 million and received positive reviews from critics for its animation, humor, and story. It was nominated at the British Academy Film Awards for Best Animated Film.
