Aardman's 20 best films - ranked!

From early experiments in claymation TV to its forthcoming Shaun the Sheep big-screen sequel, we rate the animation studio's output.

Andrew Pulver, The Guardian, 19th September 2019

The hero of Aardman's marvellous, long-running TV series gets his own film. The trick is to take Shaun and his chums out of their comfort zone on Mossy Bottom Farm and into the big city in search of their errant farmer. Wild adventures ensue in a restaurant, a hairdresser's, a dog's home and the inside of a pantomime horse, all rendered in glorious claymation. It's a giggle from start to finish.

Shaun The Sheep Movie: behind the scenes

From the outside, it all looks pretty conventional - a neat, unassuming building tucked away in a corner of an industrial park on the edges of Bristol. One step across the threshold, however, and it's clear that a rich, woolly world lies within the walls of Aardman Studios, where Shaun The Sheep is on the verge of joining their other big screen stars.
