The Wallace and Gromit franchise is gearing up to make an extremely cute expansion. The stop-motion maestros at Aardman Animations have announced that Shaun the Sheep will be getting a sequel, with work on the film expected to begin in January. Both the original CBBC series — which is still airing — and the first film revolved around the many misadventures of the mischievous and clever titular sheep, with the film proving so popular that it netted a nomination for Best Animated Film at the Oscars earlier this year. Because who could possibly resist that adorable ruminant mammal?!
