Could there be better news than a new 30-minute Wallace and Gromit short the first since 1995’s A Close Shave.
Creator Nick Park said: “The story takes Wallace and Gromit in a direction we haven’t seen before – both emotionally and technically.”
Shooting starts in January at Aardman studios in Bristol.
Trouble At’ Mill is a murder mystery that sees Wallace and Gromit running a bakery business – with their house converted into a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms.
Creator Nick Park was busy making the Oscar®-winning CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT in the intervening years but is happy to return to the short form. The film is expected in 2008.
