Shaun the Sheep Movie sequel on way

A sequel to the hit animated film Shaun the Sheep Movie has been announced.

Bristol-based producer Aardman Animations said that work on Shaun the Sheep Movie 2 would begin in January 2017, with Richard Starzak back on board as director (though Mark Burton, who co-directed the first film, will not return).

David Sproxton, co-founder and executive chairman of Aardman, maker of the Wallace and Gromit films, said in a statement: “The flock are very excited to be embarking on another big screen adventure – a rip-roaring comedy that takes them to even greater heights of lunacy.”

Shaun originated as a character in Nick Park’s 1995 Oscar-winning short A Close Shave, and then became the central figure in a highly successful TV series, Shaun the Sheep, which debuted on the CBBC channel in 2007. Shaun the Sheep Movie was released in 2015 and has taken more than $106m worldwide.
