A sequel to Shaun the Sheep Movie is set to be made by StudioCanal, according to a report in Variety.
Studiocanal is pleased with the near-silent animated film’s worldwide takings, with Shaun the Sheep Movie recently crossing the $100m mark worldwide, including a handsome $21m from the UK market.
Olivier Courson, Studiocanal CEO, said: “I’m very pleased to see that, as for Shaun the Sheep, you can be distinctive, take risks, be aggressively ambitious and wish for quality and, at the same time, have a good B.O. result, and be mainstream.”
Aardman and Studiocanal will now work together to deliver a Shaun the Sheep Movie sequel.
