SHAUN THE SHEEP THE MOVIE Teaser Trailer & Poster

We have the first teaser trailer and poster for Aardman‘s Shaun the Sheep the Movie, a spin-off of the much-loved Wallace and Gromit franchise, which lands in U.K. theaters on March 20, 2015.

The animated character Shaun the Sheep was first seen in the Oscar-winning Wallace and Gromit short A Close Shave (1995) and then went on to get its own TV show in 2007.

Written and directed by Richard Starzak and Mark Burton, the upcoming film is shot in Aardman’s trademark stop motion style and sees Shaun who decides to take a day off from the farm and have some fun, but gets a little more action than he bargained for.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser and the first poster.

“Shaun’s mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it’s up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him.”
