When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
The characters (Shaun, Bitzer, etc) all have their old Series 1 designs, except for the farmer who has his rectangular glasses from later in the Shaun the Sheep (2007) series.
The film features the eight 'named' sheep (Shaun, Timmy, Timmy's mum, Hazel, Shirley, Nuts and The Twins), however, a few minutes in as they are celebrating the success of their plan to make the farmer fall asleep in the wheelbarrow a ninth sheep (which looks like another Hazel) appears for that scene only.
The first minutes of the end credits show what happened after the movie ends.
The US release of the film tacks on the Lionsgate logo at the very beginning, and the opening credit screen is altered to read "Lionsgate, StudioCanal & Aardman present", whereas in the UK version, only the latter two studios are present and credited.
