Aardman and Studiocanal partner with the European Space Agency
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s lunar landing, the European Space Agency (ESA) have partnered with Aardman and Studiocanal to prepare Shaun the Sheep for his first mission to space.
Shaun was granted exclusive access on the specialized ‘Zero G’ Airbus A300, during one of their parabolic flights, and trained under the supervision of the ESA’s team, ahead of the release of Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon in October.
The Director General of the European Space Agency, Jan Wörner, commented “ESA is very happy to have helped Shaun in his big space adventure”.
Further to this exclusive collaboration, the ESA will be working with Aardman and Studiocanal on dedicated activity planned across Studiocanal’s European territories.
