The Sandbox team is proud to announce that it is partnering with Aardman, the studio behind the ‘Shaun the Sheep’ global brand.

Starting as a character in the renowned series, Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep quickly made a name in his own series and two feature films. Now, the world’s most famous sheep will make its first big appearance in the blockchain world through The Sandbox! Shaun is the first sheep to ever enter the metaverse

The teams behind the ‘Shaun the Sheep’ brand are excited about creating exclusive non-fungible tokens (NFTs) based on their universe and all the possibilities that true digital ownership secured by blockchain technology will offer.

“Who could imagine a sheep would be a pioneer and become the first virtual character to set a foot in a blockchain-powered metaverse?” said Sebastien Borget, COO & Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “It is our pleasure to be working with Aardman on how popular brands and IPs such as Shaun the Sheep can embrace non-fungible tokens and true ownership of digital collectibles based on the license in ways that are meaningful for their fans, through The Sandbox game making platform.”

Through this partnership, The Sandbox will have an ESTATE assigned to Shaun the Sheep’s voxel world. In sync with the space-themed sequel, ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmaggedon’, Shaun will be one of the first licensed characters to enter The Sandbox metaverse. Young and old fans alike will be able to play around in a voxel-made reimagining of the colorful Mossy Bottom Farm. Game experiences around Shaun, Bitzer, and the flock can be created by the community, including fans and voxel artists.

Adam Vincent-Garland, Senior Interactive Exec at Aardman Animations said,

Shaun the Sheep celebrates his 25th anniversary in 2020 and has become a global character brand loved by millions of people around the world. Here at Aardman we are always looking for innovative ways to reach our audiences and tell engaging stories, so we are excited to work with a platform that empowers its users to craft their own virtual worlds and create unique adventures like The Sandbox. We are very proud to not only be the first Sheep to enter the metaverse but also one of the first licensed characters!
