Watch A New Aardman Short Film Spin-Off From Pirates!

The new Aardman feature, Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, is currently playing in UK cinemas and I imagine it’s going to do a roaring trade over the long Easter weekend.

I can’t say it was exactly hilarious, but it’s an incredibly good looking film and I have seen it twice, which does mean something.

Sky Movies are running a new spin-off short, The Pirate Captain’s Chat Show, featuring over five minutes of new animation. Incredible, really, that this amount of effort was made – it’s not easy carrying off stop motion animation of this calibre.
