What are you doing August 5th?
Our whole family is going to see
the Shaun the Sheep Movie!
Okay, watch this clip and I DARE you not to smile!
I can’t wait to see Shaun the Sheep Movie! Our whole family will be there on opening day, this movie really has me excited! Why? Well, I know there will be laughter, lots of laughter, seat-dancing, smiling, warm “awww”s and tons of FUN. This is the perfect way to celebrate your summer. Before your kids go back to school, enjoy a fun adventure with Shaun and his flock.
Have you seen “Shaun the Sheep” or “Timmy Time” on television? They are endearing, funny, adorable shows that are perfect for children and enjoyable for adults, as well. Created with stop-motion, claymation style, the comedy style is compared to slapstick in old silent movies. In this first feature-length film for Shaun, I think the creators truly reach adults as well as children with their comedy.
The visual textures are incredible in this movie. When you watch the clips, for example the “Meet Timmy” clip, take note of how fluffy the wool looks, how rough the wood is, fabric textures, even Timmy’s teddy bear which looks exactly like my one of my daughters toys! The clips about individual characters are especially fun to watch because you get a behind-the-scenes look at how the film was made. It’s incredible to see and I can’t imagine how difficult it was but fun at the same time. What imagination!
“Shaun the Sheep is a young sheep who’s fed up with the farmer telling him what to do every day…. Shaun is like a 10 to 12 year old boy. He pushes against the boundaries that are set for him… He’s the kind of character, if there is a button that says “Do Not Press” – he will eventually press it.” Know anyone like that? Hehehe, I know a few!
“Timmy’s the youngest member of the flock, he’s the toddler. He’s very cheeky…. Mischief is his thing.” The relationship between Timmy and Shaun is fun to watch, especially if you know a real-life sibling pair and have seen their interactions. My daughter and I had a blast just watching the trailer and clips, this movie is a sure hit!
Music always interests me in movies and from the first minute of the Shaun the Sheep Movie clips, I knew the music was going to have me dancing in my seat. The official trailer features Pitbull’s “Fireball” but what surprised me the most was how much I loved the song written for the film, “Feels Like Summer”. The melody has a perfect summer-feel, I picture picnics and beaches, hot sunshine and blue skies. Watch this clip and see if you agree.
