MEET SHAUN! He’s a little sheep with big dreams, and lately, life on Mossy Bottom Farm has become a bit dull. When Shaun takes the day off for some fun in the Big City, he gets a lot more action than he bargained for. Now Shaun and his flock must use their wits to hatch a baaaa-rilliant plan to get back home in an adventure the whole family will love.
We have always loved Wallace & Gromit, so we were pretty excited when we heard the news that Shaun the Sheep was being made into a movie! It’s such a fun film too, and would be a perfect gift for anyone this holiday season! Full of clever sight jokes, and lots of laughs, it’s a movie you can enjoy with all ages. There is even an animal rescue message!
From Aardman, the producers of Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit comes Shaun the Sheep Movie, a farm-tastic adventure for the whole family, arriving just in time for the holidays on Digital HD November 10 and Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on November 24 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Perfect for the young and young-at-heart, this “world-class winner” (Rolling Stone) is rated 99% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and was the #1 movie on their Summer Movie Score Card for 2015.
The Shaun the Sheep Movie home entertainment release comes loaded with bonus features including a fascinating look behind-the-scenes of the making of the film as well as interviews with the cast and crew. The Blu-Ray™ combo pack (plus Digital) and DVD (plus Digital) will be available for $34.99 and $29.95, respectively.

We are really excited to share the news about the new movie Max. You see, we love the military. We are so grateful for all the brave heroes, people and dogs alike, that fight to keep our country free. Max is a story about a hero dog and his family.
A precision-trained military dog, Max serves on the frontlines in Afghanistan alongside his handler, U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott. But when things go terribly wrong on maneuvers, Kyle is mortally wounded and Max, traumatized by the loss of his best friend, is unable to remain in service.
Sent stateside, the only human he seems willing to connect with is Kyle’s teenage brother, Justin, so Max is saved when he is adopted by Kyle’s family. But Justin has issues of his own, including living up to his father’s expectations, and he isn’t interested in taking responsibility for his brother’s troubled dog. However, Max may be Justin’s only chance to discover what really happened to his brother that day on the front, and with the help of Carmen, a tough-talking young teen who has a way with dogs, Justin begins to appreciate his canine companion.
Justin’s growing trust in Max helps the four-legged veteran revert back to his heroic self, and as the pair race to unravel the mystery, they find more excitement—and danger—than they bargained for. But they each might also find an unlikely new best friend…in each other.
A lot of heart and thought went into the making of this movie. I hope it will bring new light on a very important subject, PTSD, not just for humans, but for hero dogs too. Please go see the film, it’s rated PG, and is sure to warm your heart.
