Having enjoyed a brilliant reception for Shaun the Sheep Movie, Aardman has inked deals with two major partners for the charming non-dialog series in the U.S.
On the home entertainment front, Lionsgate has picked up the entire Shaun the Sheep catalogue of five seasons and the new half-hour special The Farmer’s Llamas. Home releases will begin rolling out at major entertainment retailers beginning February 23.
And in broadcast, Turner Broadcasting will be bringing all five seasons of the show to young fans on its Boomerang channel.
These deals follow an agreement with Amazon Prime Video for the U.S. launch of The Farmer’s Llamas, as well as a new partnership with JLK Licensing which will build a long-term licensing and merchandising program for the brand Stateside.
