Shaun the Sheep
Shaun the Sheep thinks and acts like a person in a barnyard, which usually gets him into trouble. The farmer’s sheepdog, Bitzer, tries to keep Shaun and his friends out of trouble. The farmer is oblivious to the humanlike features of his flock, who are like one big, happy family.

Shaun the Sheep’s highly anticipated return to the big screen in Farmageddon, heralds the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy……an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA who crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure as he sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA home. Her magical alien powers, irrepressible mischief and galactic sized burps – showcased in today’s trailer – soon have the flock enchanted. Can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?

Addicted to Sheep
Set in the North Pennines, Addicted to Sheep is an intimate portrait of a year in the life of tenant hill farmers Tom and Kay Hutchinson and their family, as they try to breed the perfect Swaldale sheep.
