Shaun the Sheep: Sheep on the Loose (movie review)

Our family is big time Shaun the Sheep fans! We were so excited when we heard a new one was coming out, and we couldn't wait to see it! Sheep on the Loose came out in stores on June 9th from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment!
Shaun the Sheep is an international hit on DVD, selling more than a million units in Europe in only one year! Five-minute shorts of the series also currently air in the U.S. on the Disney Channel. The complete episodes are only available on DVD.
Shaun the Sheep and his barnyard gang are back with more chaos in the countryside! The Oscar-winning creators of “Wallace and Gromit” do it again with sheep-tacular new adventures and shear wackiness. Shaun is a sheep who doesn’t follow the flock, and along with the other sheep and those naughty pigs, there’s sure to be plenty of mayhem in the meadow. Follow along with Shaun and his barnyard buddies Shirley, the Farmer, Bitzer the sheep dog and the naughty flock in these six hilarious episodes:
· “Sheep On the Loose” - Nearly all the sheep take the bus to the fun fair. Shaun and Shirley must convince the Farmer that the flock is out to pasture.
· “Saturday Night Shaun” - Shaun finds the Farmer’s old record player in the dump and organizes a rave in the barn - but trouble looms when the Naughty Pigs crash the party.
· “Tidy Up” - The sheep's field is a mess, and the Farmer tells Bitzer to clean it up - but he makes the mistake of getting Shaun and company to help.
· “Shaun the Farmer” - The Farmer is sick in bed, so, with Bitzer playing nurse-maid, it's up to Shaun to handle the daily chores around the farm - with disastrous results.
· “Camping Chaos” - An unfriendly camper sets up his tent in the sheep's field. When he goes off exploring, Shaun and the flock decide to do some exploring of their own.
· “You Can't Stand the Heat” - It is a scorching hot day, and the flock is desperate to cool down in the Sheep Dip. There's only one thing in their way: the sun-bathing Farmer!
· Snout, Trotter & A Curly Tail - Building A Pig – One of Aardman’s chief model makers shows kids how a Naughty Pig is created from start to finish
· The Mini Making Of Shaun - A behind-the-scenes look at how Aardman produces Shaun the Sheep, with episode clips, character models and model makers
Shaun the Sheep and his barnyard crew will keep you laughing, and it is a film that the whole family can enjoy! You can find your copy in stores, or online at Amazon. Your family will love Shaun the Sheep!
