Fun Family Movie Pick- Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llama {A Review}

**DVD received for review. All thoughts are my own.

Rainy days seem to be pretty common this summer here in Indy! So, what do we do? One thing we love doing when the rain keeps us in is cuddling up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and a fun family movie! So, we're always on the hunt for DVDs to add to our collection! Today I'm excited to share with you one such DVD that my son has fallen in love with- Shaun The Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas!

From the company that brought you the Academy Award®-nominated film, Shaun the Sheep Movie (Best Animated Feature Film, 2015), the all-new TV special Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas will be available on DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD on June 14 from Lionsgate. Full of Aardman’s signature high-energy slapstick comedy appealing to audiences of all ages, Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas DVD includes bonus episodes and will be available for a suggested retail price of $14.98. 

When the Farmer and Bitzer go to a country fair, Shaun decides to tag along for the fun and finds himself crafting a brilliant plan to bring three exotic and witty llamas back home to Mossy Bottom Farm. Shaun is delighted with his new friends and believes that the llamas are just what the flock needs to spice up their lives. At first everything is fun, exciting, and silly, but soon their new llama roommates get a bit too wild in their new home.

Now, I must admit, personally I'm not a huge Shaun the Sheep fan...it's just not my personal taste. My son on the other hand LOVES it! First and foremost, he loves the name! Not only is his name Shaun too, but it's spelled correctly and everything! That certainly drew him in initially. But it was show itself that kept him coming back for more. He was a Wallace and Gromit fan before, and Shaun the Sheep offers some of that same humor and animation too. From the first joke to the last, anytime my Shaun watches Shaun the Sheep, he is falling over in laughter the whole time! Again, I don't understand it--- but he enjoys it and that's the most important thing! This DVD was no different! He absolutely loved it! If you already have a Shaun the Sheep fan, this is going to be a must have to add to their collection. If you've not yet experienced the show, this is a great place to start! Your little ones will so enjoy laughing as they follow Shaun the Sheep along on his hilarious and goofy adventure!

(Warning to the newbies: The theme song is absolutely, positively addicting! You WILL be singing it for days! In fact, if your little one is already a fan, chances are you started hearing it in your head the moment you read the title of this post!)

In addition to this fun episode, you'll find the following special features to keep the fun going:

  • “Meet the Llamas” Featurette
  • “The Director’s Perspective” Featurette
  • “Behind the Fleece” Featurette
  • 2 Bonus Episodes – “Cheetah Cheater” & “Zebra Ducks of the Serengeti”

This truly is a great addition to your children's DVD collection and perfect for those gloomy, rainy summer days! It will be available to purchase on June 14th!

    I don't think this would be my taste either, but I do think my kids would find this funny. We watch movies on rainy days too!
