I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Lionsgate. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Today I am excited to bring to you a preview of a new kids film: the Shaun the Sheep Movie.
It’s quite cute! Perfect for children ages 4 – 10.
It’s a story about a flock of sheep that is quite good at getting away with having fun. In the movie, they sneak off of the farm and get a little more action than they bargained for. After a mixup with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill, they end up in the “big city.” Shaun and the flock must return everyone safely to the green grass of home, all the while getting into the sticky situations on their adventure.
After seeing so many movies with realistic cartoon characters, I appreciate the Claymation touch of this movie. It brings back memories of watching so many Claymation movies as a child.
Here’s a little preview of the movie:
And here is a preview of my favorite character, Timmy. He’s the youngest member of the flock, a toddler no less! He copies Shaun and gets into quite a bit of trouble in the process.
I think kids (and adults) of all ages will love this movie! Maybe it’s just me, but I think these sheep are the cutest characters with their sideways mouths! They are just too adorable.
The Shaun the Sheep Movie will be released August 5th nationwide. Visit the official website for more information.
