Following his big screen debut, Shaun the Sheep is heading to BBC One later this year, with Aardman Animations announcing that it is in production on its first ever thirty-minute Shaun the Sheep special entitled Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas. The special will chronice another of Shaun’s adventures, and introduce new characters to the Aardman family including a pack of mischievous llamas: Hector, Fernando and Raul.
Here’s the official synopsis…
When the Farmer and Bitzer go to a Country Fair, Shaun steals away with them intent on causing mischief. Shaun spies an auction where he sees three exotic and very crafty Llamas going under the hammer. Instantly besotted by their fantastic pranks Shaun cleverly gets the unwitting Farmer to buy them.
Back at Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun is delighted with his prank and convinces the Flock that the Llamas are just what they need to spice up their lives. At first everything’s great fun, but soon their new Llama room-mates get a bit too comfortable in their new home.
When things spiral out of control, Shaun is forced to take action to oust the intruders and save the farm.
