Parents need to know that Shaun the Sheep Movie is the full-length spin-off of Aardman Animation's same-named short-form TV series. There's no actual dialogue -- just animal noises, exaggerated gestures, and evocative music. It's appropriate for older preschoolers mature enough not to be bothered by brief scenes of mild peril (a cruel animal control officer is after the farm animals). While no characters are seriously injured, there's one briefly frightening sequence when it seems the animals will plunge to their deaths. There's also some silly potty humor (fart, poop, pee jokes) and a photo of a nude man (all sensitive parts are covered by a chair), but overall this is a sweet little adventure that's fine for almost all ages, with positive messages about teamwork, friendship, and acknowledging and fixing your mistakes.
