The minds behind “Shaun” hold forth for an informative half-hour on making (much) more with (much) less.
The Aardman theatrical animation brand has become all but obsolete in the United States.
Aardman’s adaptation of “Shaun the Sheep” is a critically acclaimed wonder. Will American audiences appreciate it?
How many Americans even know ‘Shaun the Sheep’ has a feature film coming out in less than a month?
The stop-motion film will arrive in the U.S. in August.
Starting out as a side character in the Wallace and Gromit short “A Close Shave” (1995), Shaun the Sheep became an unlikely franchise star. After getting his own line of merchandise and a spin-off television series (which was popular enough to spawn its own spin-off, “Timmy Time”) Shaun is set to become the subject of Aardman’s next feature in spring 2015. The film currently doesn’t appear to have a U.S. distributor.
