Aardman and Studiocanal have joined forces once again for the second film based on Shaun the Sheep, called Shaun the Sheep Movie 2.

Pre-production for the sequel film will commence in January 2017 and will be directed by Richard Starzak (Shaun the Sheep Movie, Creature Comforts) and produced by Paul Kewley (Shaun the Sheep Movie, The Farmer’s Llamas).

Shaun’s move to the big screen proved such a success with audiences around the world that he and the flock are very excited to be embarking on another big screen adventure,” says David Sproxton, co-founder and executive chairman, Aardman. “Aardman is partnering with Studiocanal once again to produce another rip-roaring comedy, featuring Shaun and the rest of the gang in a story that takes them to even greater heights of lunacy.”

"All of us here at Studiocanal are Aardman fans,” says Ron Halpern, executive vice president, international productions and acquisitions, Studiocanal. “To get to see the wonderful way they work in Bristol as they have for 40 years now through to the first Shaun the Sheep Movie was an experience we will always cherish.  Luckily we get to start again with what will definitely be another film showcasing Aardman's unique humor, creativity and craftsmanship."
