Wallace and Gromit Return: BBC & Netflix to Air New Animated Feature


 

Wallace and Gromit are returning to screens for the first time in more than 15 years, with the BBC and Netflix snapping up Aardman’s latest animation.

 

The as-yet-untitled film will air in 2024, is creator Nick Park’s first Wallace and Gromit outing since 2008’s Oscar-nominated A Matter of Loaf and Death and will be the sixth to feature the lovable man and dog partnership across almost 35 years.

 

 

The BBC will take UK rights and Netflix will air in all other territories.

 

Tapping into modern day fears over automation, the film will focus on Gromit’s concern that Wallace has become over-dependent on his inventions, which proves justified 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.
