Storyline

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?

Adorable, yet a bit boring
7 October 2019 | by trinaboiceSee all my reviews

Picture a Shaun The Sheep - The Movie version of E.T.,The Extra-Terrestrial with no dialogue, and you've got this animated stop-motion comedy that is the first feature length sequel Aardman has ever made. In case you don't remember, Shaun The Sheep - The Movie actually received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature about 4 years ago, earning over $100 million in box office ticket sales alone.

This adorable clamation film directed by Richard Phelan and Will Becher, was going to be released last spring in the USA but was delayed until December 2019.

While I absolutely adored the Wallace & Gromit in Three Amazing Adventures shorts, the Aardman feature films always leave me a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this movie is super cute, but it just didn't hold my attention.

The stop motion animation is impressive, as always. There are always plenty of cute things to look at in each frame. There is a lot of humor through visual gags and adorable sound effects. Unusual for stop motion, a tiny bit of CGI is used to make Lu-La's floppy ears look sparkly when she's doing something magical. The song that plays on the farmer's radio is called Forever Autumn (From Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of "The War of the Worlds"). There are some visual and audio gags only adults will appreciate. For example, some buttons are pushed that make the musical theme from the movie Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (Original Version) I doubt very many kids have ever seen that movie.

Unusual for stop motion, a tiny bit of CGI is used to make Lu-La's floppy ears look sparkly when she's doing something magical. Keep watching past the end credits for one final musical gag. I'm surprised more creativity wasn't used to design the alien Lu-La. She just basically looked like a blue dog. Many of the references offer a respectful nod to the magic of Spielberg; however, some moments and even characters seem like rip-offs from movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey or Wall-E The musical montages seem a bit out of place with the rest of the film.
