In A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, the residents and sheep of Mossingham have their lives changed by the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy.

When the intergalactic visitor – an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA – crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure and sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA home.

Shaun takes his new extra-terrestrial friend on the road to Mossingham Forest to find her lost spaceship, unaware that a sinister alien-hunting agency is on their trail. But can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?

In and around the capital, the special preview screenings are taking place at venues such as Picturehouse Central, Vue West End, Ritzy Picturehouse in Brixton, Clapham Picturehouse, Vue Piccadilly, Odeon Wimbledon and Kingston, and Hackney Picturehouse – all on Sunday, October 13, 2019.
