There is something strange going on in the peaceful town of Mossingham, right after the fantastic rescue mission in Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015). As mischievous Shaun orders in pizza for the woolly flock under the nose of the Farmer, and Bitzer, the ever-watchful sheepdog, a mysterious, fast-moving UFO enters the Earth's atmosphere and crash-lands near the verdant Mossy Bottom Farm. Now, Lu-La, the extraordinary friendly creature from the depths of the galaxy, is in grave danger, light-years away from home. Can Shaun, and the rest of the lambs, lend a helping hand, and protect their new extraterrestrial companion from the Ministry of Alien Detection, and its unstoppable leader, Agent Red?Written by
When Timmy slips into the ED209 looking robot and begins pulling chips, it's an obvious (one of many) homage to when HAL is deactivated in a similar manner in 2001. See more »
The tic-tac-toe game has 4 "x"s and 2 "o"s. There can be at most one extra "x" in a valid game. See more »
Aardman variation: At the beginning of the film, we see a sheep at a keyboard. He begins to play 4 notes of "Life's a Treat", While Grouped letters of the Aardman logo appear. When it reaches the final note. The word appears in 1 whole. He presses a note forming the star, Takes the music book and walks away, The lights dim out and the word Aardman fades out as the star zooms into outer space, turning white in the process See more »
The Netflix version makes the logos shorter and adds in the MPAA logo. See more »
I can't understand the other reviewer: Our 5 and a half year old and we ourselves laughed our a**es off in the cinema.
It was such a great work, as ever with Aardman. Even the new logo is over the top great stuff and you can see in every (!) scene the love these guys have for their work. And much work it is, of course.
All the cool hints to other movies (E.T. and Close encounters of the Third Kind) and series (The X Files) are so cool and make it even more worthwile for us adults, watching along with our kids.
As with every Aardman movie or series: Great stuff, keep it coming, please!
We love your work immensely!
