Good ewes, folks: We have a few special codes to download the digital version of Aardman Animations’ Shaun the Sheep Movie, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Written and directed by Richard Starzak and Mark Burton, the non-dialog stop-motion comedy is nominated for this year’s Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film.
The film finds mischievous young sheep Shaun in a very urban pickle, when a prank on the Farmer goes wrong and it’s up to Shaun and the following flock to go into the Big City to put things right — while dealing with an overzealous animal control officer. Special features for the home entertainment release (also available on DVD and Blu-ray) include “Making the Shaun Movie” featurette, “Meet the Characters,” “Join Shaun Behind the Scenes,” “Meet the Crew” and a parody poster gallery.
