Aardman announced yesterday that they are in production with Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas, the first ever Shaun the Sheep thirty-minute special, which is due to air across TV screens around the globe later this year!
Created by Richard Starzak and directed by Jay Grace (pictured above), this special episode will be a must-see for Aardman fans, and will introduce some hilarious new characters, including a pack of mischievous llamas called Hector, Fernando and Raul!
Want to know more about the story? Here’s a quick rundown:
When the Farmer and Bitzer go to a Country Fair, Shaun steals away with them intent on causing mischief. Shaun spies an auction where he sees three exotic and very crafty Llamas going under the hammer.
Instantly besotted by their fantastic pranks Shaun cleverly gets the unwitting Farmer to buy them. Back at Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun is delighted with his prank and convinces the Flock that the Llamas are just what they need to spice up their lives.
At first everything’s great fun, but soon their new Llama room-mates get a bit too comfortable in their new home. When things spiral out of control, Shaun is forced to take action to oust the intruders and save the farm.
Look out for more exciting Farmer’s Llamas news coming soon!
