“The Wrong Trousers” was the (short) film debut of the claymation duo Wallace and Gromit. To celebrate 30 years since its debut, a new feature film is in the works. However, that is not all. The award-winning animation studio behind it Wallace and Gromit, Aardman, has a number of other surprises in store. They will be big for this one.
The feature, slated for release in 2024, is the first appearance of Wallace and Gromit in proper film form since 2008’s A Matter Of Loaf And Death. The short did some big numbers and became the most-watched TV show in 2000s in the UK with over 16.2 million viewers. It’s safe to say the next entry should do pretty well. In addition, it debuts Netflix around the world, meaning you can catch up with Wallace and his dog on-demand. If you’re in the UK, you can catch the premiere on the BBC before it hits the streaming service.
There is also an upcoming one Wallace and Gromit VR experience coming out that will be compatible with Meta Quest. The Grand Getaway is a single player VR environment, complete with an entire narrative. This will of course be the pair’s debut in the format.
If you are a big Wallace and Gromit damn, especially locally in the UK, you’re really lucky with this one.
