Aardman Animations has announced plans to create the first international “Shaun the Sheep” family attraction at the Skånes Djurpark animal park in Sweden.
Shaun the Sheep Land will open in early summer 2016.
“Aardman strives to collaborate with like-minded partners who share our core values in providing quality family entertainment experiences," says Sean Clarke, head of rights and brand development, Aardman. "We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Skånes Djurpark and the Lund Group to premier ‘Shaun the Sheep’s’ first-ever international family attraction in Sweden. It will be a world’s first and a great way to give families an opportunity to immerse themselves into the fun and excitement of 'Shaun the Sheep.’”
"Skånes Djurpark’s vision is to become the No. 1 destination for families in Sweden," says Håkon Lund, chairman, Lund Gruppen, owner of the park. "We could not have found a better partner in ‘Shaun the Sheep’ and Aardman. The team of Aardman is passionate and the world’s best in their industry, entertaining children and adults globally. They create stories that are universal and without borders which has been an important factor in partnering with them for this project in a location close to both Denmark, Germany, Norway and Eastern Europe.”
