Shaun the Sheep Land comes to Sweden
ardman and Skånes Djurpark have announced an exciting new partnership to bring the first international Shaun the Sheep family attraction to Sweden.
Based on the park’s 6 values – play, learn, share, explore, magic and excitement- Aardman and Skånes Djurpark will create an experience that will bring the visitors into Shaun’s world, all in 3D. Families will see, feel, taste, and experience the world of Shaun that so far has only been seen on TV and in the movie theatres.
”Skånes Djurpark’s vision is to become the number1 destination for families in Sweden. We could not have found a better partner in Shaun the Sheep and Aardman. The team of Aardman is passionate and the world’s best in their industry, entertaining children and adults globally. They create stories that are universal and without borders which has been an important factor in partnering with them for this project in a location close to both Denmark, Germany, Norway and Eastern Europe” said Håkon Lund, Chairman of Lund Gruppen.
“Aardman strives to collaborate with like-minded partners who share our core values in providing quality family entertainment experiences. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Skanes Djurpark and the Lund Group to premier Shaun the Sheep’s first ever international family attraction in Sweden. It will be a world’s first and a great way to give families an opportunity to immerse themselves into the fun and excitement of Shaun the Sheep” added Sean Clarke, Head of Rights and Brand Development at Aardman.
The Shaun the Sheep Land will open early in the summer of 2016 and is budgeted to cost around 5 million pounds.
