In the latest Saturday Mourning Cartoons interview, we chat with Will Becher and Richard Phelan, the directors of Aardman Animation's 'A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon.' The duo talked about their experience in the animation industry and how it led them to direct this franchise's space-faring sequel, which is absolutely packed full of Easter eggs and nods to classic sci-fi titles. They also revealed how the creation of Lu-La came about, her early designs that didn't make the final cut, the challenge of designing a spaceship in stop-motion animation, and how the cast communicated the story without any spoken dialogue. Plus, they tease what's up next for Aardman, including more of Shaun the Sheep and 'Chicken Run 2.'
