Any time is the right time for a stop-motion animated flick from Aardman Studios. Just last year, we got the earnest and timeless family adventure film Early Man, and now we’re being treated to the highly anticipated animated sequel, Shaun the Sheep Movie 2: Farmageddon. The title may be a bit of a mouthful, but the newly released official trailer shows that Aardman still has that movie magic in spades.
Directed by Will Becher and Richard Phelan, from a script written by Jon Brown and Mark Burton with characters by Nick Park, and starring Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes, and Kate Harbour, Shaun the Sheep Movie 2: Farmageddon arrives in the U.K. on October 18th. While there’s no U.S. release date just yet, the animated sequel is already on the books for other territories; check them out here!
Take a look at the official trailer for Shaun the Sheep Movie 2: Farmageddon below:

And here’s the official synopsis:
Strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy… When the intergalactic visitor – an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA – crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure and sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA home. Her magical alien powers, irrepressible mischief and galactic sized burps soon have the flock enchanted. Shaun takes his new extra-terrestrial friend on the road to Mossingham Forest to find her lost spaceship, unaware that a sinister alien-hunting agency is on their trail. Can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?
