Amazon MGM Studios’ “Three Bags Full: A Sheep Detective Movie” has wrapped principal photography and landed a worldwide theatrical release date of February 20, 2026.

The live-action comedy stars Hugh Jackman, flanked by an ensemble cast including Emma Thompson (“Matilda the Musical”), Nicholas Braun (“Succession”), Nicholas Galitzine (“The Idea of You”), Molly Gordon (“Theater Camp”), Hong Chau (“The Whale”), Tosin Cole (“Till”), Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (“Wonka”), Conleth Hill (“Game of Thrones”), and Mandeep Dhillon (“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”).

The pic follows George Hardy (Jackman), a shepherd who loves his sheep and raises them only for their wool. Every night he reads aloud a murder mystery, pretending his sheep can understand, never suspecting that not only can they understand, but they argue for hours afterward about whodunnit.

When George is found dead under mysterious circumstances, the sheep realize at once that it was a murder and think they know everything about how to go about solving it. The local cop Tim Derry (Nicholas Braun), on the other hand, has never solved a serious crime in his life, so the sheep conclude they will have to solve it themselves, even if it means leaving their meadow for the first time and facing the fact that the human world isn’t as simple as it appears in books.

Kyle Balda directed the pic from a script by Craig Mazin and based on Leonie Swann’s 2005 international bestseller.

It is produced by Lindsay Doran and Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. Executive producers are Phil Lord, Chris Miller, Aditya Sood, and Tim Wellspring. 

Creative collaborators on “Three Bags Full: A Sheep Detective Movie” include director of photography George Steel, production designer Suzie Davies, costume designer Rosa Dias, hair and make-up designer Sharon Martin, and editor Paul Machliss. 

Graham Page is the visual effects supervisor and George’s flock of sheep will be created by Framestore.
