Shaun the Sheep is coming back to the big screen.
Aardman and Studiocanal announced Tuesday that they’re teaming up again for a sequel to the Oscar-nominated 2015 animated Shaun the Sheep Movie.
Richard Starzak, who directed the original film, will return for the follow-up, as will producer Paul Kewley. Production on Shaun the Sheep Movie 2 is set to begin in January 2017.
Shaun the Sheep Movie arrived in theaters in August 2015 and went on to gross $108 million worldwide. It earned an nomination for Best Animated Feature at this year’s Academy Awards.
Aardman, the studio behind Wallace & Gromit, is also currently in production with Studiocanal on the animated prehistoric comedy Early Man, which features the voices of Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston.
