Everyone’s favourite animated inventor and his trusty sidekick are back in a new adventure which will be broadcast by the BBC during Christmas 2024 (it’s a very early Christmas present).
Director Nick Park is working on a brand new Wallace & Gromit adventure that focuses on Gromit’s concern that Wallace has become over-dependant on his inventions, particularly when Wallace invents a “smart gnome” that seems to develop a mind of its own.
As events spiral out of control, it falls to Gromit to put aside his qualms and battle sinister forces or Wallace may never be able to invent again!
The adventures will debut on the BBC in the UK and Netflix in the rest of the world.
Sean Clarke, MD of Aardman, the studio behind the duo, said: “Wallace and Gromit are so loved by everyone at Aardman – they’re like family to us, and we couldn’t be more excited to be creating a brand-new film for them to star in.
“When Nick came up with the concept for a ‘smart gnome’, we all agreed that Wallace would find the idea irresistible – despite warnings from Gromit, who is wise beyond his (dog) years. We’re sure audiences will find the story irresistible too.”
