A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (also known as Shaun the Sheep Movie 2) is a 2019 film and the sequel to the first Shaun the Sheep Movie, This film is directed by Will Becher and Richard Phelan and produced by Paul Kewley.
The film opens with a man and his dog buying fries, until his dog runs into the forest. The man chases after his dog into the forest, and runs up a big hill. Over the hill, he sees a UFO land. The alien opens up the door, while the man and his dog run away with fear, dropping the fries. The alien gobbles up the fries, while dropping a strange object.
A few hours ago at the farm, Shaun is playing frisbee with the other sheep, and hits Bitzer in the mouth. Bitzer bans frisbee, and starts banning other fun things around the farm. That night, Shaun sneaks into the farmer's house, while he is watching TV. On the TV, the man tells people that he saw a UFO, and the Farmer laughs at the story. Shaun orders three pizzas from Forest Fast Foods. Meanwhile, the alien is looking at Forest Fast Foods from the bushes, and spots a pizza delivery man. The pizza delivery man puts in the pizzas, and the alien climbs in and eats the pizzas. The sheep, disguised as a man, take the pizzas to the barn. Before they can even open it, Bitzer discovers them, and takes the pizzas. Bitzer gives the pizzas to the farmer instead, but finds them empty. Meanwhile, Agent Red and the Hazmats drive past the farm to investigate.
The next morning, Shaun finds a trail of pizzas leading to the barn. He finds the alien named Lu-La, a friendly, blue creature who can imitate really well. Lu-La can also make things float with her mind. The Flock have to hide Lu-La from Bizter. Lu-La gets in the Wheatchopper with Shaun, and drives crazy around the farm. The farmer is reading the newspaper about UFOs, and sees the Wheatchopper going wild. After the wild ride, Shaun gives Bitzer the Key, and the farmer finds Bitzer. However, A strange Alien-like pattern is chopped in the wheat. That gives the farmer an idea.
