You can tell by the googly eyes that Shaun the Sheep is an Aardman Animations production. The trailer promises the clever humor and adorable stop-motion animation that the studio (home of Wallace and Gromit) is known for ... plus, did we catch a Silence of the Lambs reference? Snort.

Official synopsis for the film, which comes out August 7, follows:

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.
