Part of Screen Machine’s programme in late 2019, this sequel to the Shaun the Sheep Movie returns us to Mossy Bottom Farm before launching into space for a wacky and inventive adventure.
Life on the farm is normal as ever with Bitzer the dog wary of Shaun and the flock’s mischievous schemes. Things turn up a notch when the alien Lu-La crash lands near the farm. At first, Shaun sees an opportunity for hijinks and fun, but he soon realises it’s up to him to save Lu-La from a sinister, shadowy government agency, and return her to her home planet.
A joyfully playful film, Farmageddon is rich with slapstick gags, nonsensical gibberish, and movie homages that will leave the whole family in stitches.
