Shaun the Sheep, the beloved Aardman character is getting his first half-hour special that's due to premiere in the UK on BBC One Christmas 2015. The title of the episode of it is Shaun the Sheep - The Farmers Llamas. This makes me, a long time Aardman fan really happy in my sole. It's also a great release time for Shaun because the special goes straight into production following the completion of Shaun the Sheep The Movie (which comes out in February in the UK).
Aardman's original press release went into the plot's detail and also announced that it's going to kick off a further 30*7 season of Shaun that will be released over the 2016 year.
Plus, it'll premier just after the Oscar nominations are in. And It'd be pretty great if Shaun's first feature could be in the Best Animated Feature slot!
