Wallace & Gromit|
Angefangen hat alles 1991: Damals gewann der Animationsfilm "Creature Comforts" aus den Aardman Sudios den Oscar für den besten Trickfilm. Damit wurde eine Lawine losgetreten, die Knet und Plastilin endgültig vom Vorurteil des Kinderspielzeugs fürs Vorschulalter befreite und in dem enormen Erfolg der beiden Käseliebhaber Wallace & Gromit gipfelt...|
Drei Filme, "Alles Käse", "Die Techno-Hose" und "Unter Schafen", hat Nick Park zwischen 1992 und 1995 produziert - drei Meisterwerke der Animation, die schnell eine grosse Fangemeinde hatten...

Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zur TV-Produktion "Wallace and Gromit in: A Matter of Loaf and Death"...
[...] After winning Oscars, taking their brand of none-more-english humour around the world and even hitting the big screen, Wallace & Gromit return to the small screen.
In another of his crazy business ideas, Wallace has opened a bakery, Top Bun(!) making dough-to-door deliveries all around town. But with the town's other bakers dropping like flies due to a diabolical serial killer, could Wallace be the next victim? And what does it all have to do with the mysterious Miss Piella Bakewell, who's set Wallace's heart a flutter?
Even though it's great to see W&G back on TV, and even though this is huge fun( and as usual replete with film references, even a huge homage near the end to Aliens, of all films!), this is not an instant classic like it's predecessors, especially The Wrong Trousers.
The plot tips its big reveal far too early, and Gromit gets wind of the villain's plan far too easily. But after all, this is only 30 minutes long, and still adheres to classic series formula. There's a mystery, Gromit's on the case, Wallace is five steps behind, and it all ends in a big, lavish finale.
This is a welcome, if not classic return of two beloved characters and, if eligable, could see Nick Park donning another bow tie come the Oscars. [...]
Today, fans throughout the world can see Nick Park talking about "Wallace & Gromit's" forthcoming new film. Within an interview style short film, available only on the internet, Nick reveals that the plasticine duo's new adventure will be made for TV.
"Trouble At' Mill" will join multi-award winning "The Wrong Trousers" and "A Close Shave" as a TV half hour.
"Trouble At' Mill," to be shown on BBC1, is in pre-production now. Shooting starts in January and it will be finished for fall/Christmas '08. All production will take place at the Aardman studios in Bristol.
After the incredible success of "Curse of The Were-Rabbit," Nick is delighted to return to the 30 minute format: "I love making films for the cinema but the production of 'Chicken Run' and 'Curse of the Were-Rabbit' were virtually back to back and each film took 5 years to complete. 'Trouble At' Mill' will be so much quicker to make and I can't wait to get back into production." The new film will reunite Nick with writer Bob Baker who co-wrote both "The Wrong Trousers" and "A Close Shave."
In the film, Wallace and Gromit have a brand new business. The conversion of 62 West Wallaby Street is complete and impressive, the whole house is now a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms. Huge mixing bowls are all over the place and everything is covered with a layer of flour. On the roof is a 'Wallace patent-pending' old-fashioned windmill. The transformation is perfect.
Although business is booming, Gromit is concerned by the news that 12 local bakers have 'disappeared' this year - but Wallace isn't worried. He's too distracted and 'dough-eyed' in love with local beauty and bread enthusiast, Piella Bakewell, to be of much help.
While they enjoy being the 'Toast of the Town', Gromit, with his master's life in jeopardy, must be the sleuth and solve the escalating murder mystery - in what quickly becomes a 'Matter of Loaf and Death'.

[...] Apparently, Nick Parks is going to announce his next film at midnight tonight. It's a Wallace And Grommit movie. It's funded by Sony. [...]
JoBlo.com berichtet über den nächsten W&G-Film... :-)
You knew it wouldn't be long after DreamWorks officially terminated their deal with animation house Aardman that they'd wind up somewhere else. Sure enough, Sony Pictures today announces a three-year, first-look deal with Aardman. While Sony has been working on animation in-house (OPEN SEASON, SURF'S UP) but may be looking to ramp up to two animation releases a year. The first project under the deal hasn't been announced but Aardman is currently developing four projects, including a new WALLACE AND GROMIT movie that would be directed by co-founder Nick Park. Unlike the deal with DreamWorks, which at times required them to use animation staff in Los Angeles, Aardman looks forward to creating all their films from their headquarters in Bristol. Aardman is hoping that this new deal will allow them to refocus on what made Aardman so popular instead of trying to fit their styles into DreamWorks idea of a popular film. [...]

CS! berichtet über einen weiteren W&G-Film... :-)
Aardman is moving ahead with a sequel to Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, despite its recent split from DreamWorks Animation.
Reuters says that Nick Park, creator of the characters, is busy at the drawing board creating a second film.
"Wallace and Gromit are alive and kicking," Aardman spokesman Arthur Sheriff said on Wednesday. "There is a project on the table right now.
"It could be television, it could be a feature film. That depends on how the storyline develops. It will go into production as soon as he has finished writing it."
It was a 10-carrot evening for "Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit" on Saturday at the 33rd annual Annie Awards, where Aardman Animations and DreamWorks' stop-motion comedy won 10 of 10 honors for achievement in feature animation at the annual awards, presented by the International Animated Film Society and ASIFA-Hollywood at the Alex Theater in Glendale. "Wallace" directors Nick Park and Steve Box, in the U.S. to promote the DVD release of the clay-animated "Wallace" on Tuesday, were in attendance for the first time. "To the DreamWorks team, we'd just like to thank you for your copious notes," Park said. "The were like fresh manure on our vegetables."
