It’s close encounters of the herd kind in the first full movie trailer for Shaun the Sheep’s new out-of-this-world animated comedy, Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon.

When an impish and adorable alien with amazing powers crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure, setting off on a mission to shepherd the intergalactic visitor home before a sinister organization can capture her…can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?
