Have you seen the Shaun the Sheep Movie! We absolutely loved it! After having seen every Shaun the Sheep episode many times we looked forward a full length Movie with our favourite sheep and we were not disappointed - it was fantastic. And rumor has it a second movie will come sooon!
Shaun is a sheep who does not follow the flock. Inquisitive, imaginative and mischievous, his lively personality marks him out from the other sheep in his field. His fun-loving, maverick nature is forever leading him into tricky situations, but he usually proves resourceful enough to come out on top.
Popular with the rest of the flock and a natural leader, Shaun’s independence is sometimes undermined by his relative youth and naiveté. He confronts problems with a can-do sheep-like logic, but has a tendency to leap before he looks – this mix of enthusiasm and inexperience is often a recipe for trouble. But despite his recklessness, he has an inherent sense of responsibility and will try to make amends for the chaos he causes.
