The Annecy Festival has nothing left to hide from the Aardman Animations studio. In addition to being the stars of the open-air projections, their productions have been in the Official Selection, received prizes and been presented at conferences led by Peter Lord.
They're coming back this year with the open-air screening of Shaun the Sheep Movie on the Pâquier!
Shaun is a clever sheep living a monotonous life. Not one to follow the flock, he concocts a plan to make the Farmer fall asleep, but he inadvertently ends up in the Big City.
Along with his loyal flock, Shaun sets off on a treacherous adventure to find him. They run into a lot of twists and turns, with danger around every corner like the terrible Trumper, an enraged stray-catcher who's roaming the streets.
