WATCH: The hilarious teaser trailer for Aardman's Shaun the Sheep movie

The scene-stealing sheep from Wallace and Gromit is set for his own big-screen adventure

A teaser trailer for Aardman Animation's Shaun the Sheep movie has landed, and it's reassuringly hilarious.

While the new footage doesn't offer any plot details – the movie itself won't be released until spring 2015 – we do know that the full movie will feature Shaun and his flock on a mission to rescue the Farmer from the Big City, where he's trapped as a result of some of Shaun's shenanigans.

Shaun's ascent to movie stardom has been steady. Appearing first as a scene-stealing side character in Wallace & Gromit's A Close Shave, he's also had his own self-titled spin-off TV series, which is currently in its fourth series (and has its own spin-off comic).

When the Farmer gets lost in the Big City, Shaun (Fletcher) and his friends leave Mossy Bottom Farm to rescue him. With a steady stream of hilarious, well-timed sight gags, it's a beautifully made comedy for the whole family, packed with the kind of detail that rewards future viewings.
