The new film, (not yet titled) will centre around Gromit’s concerns that Wallace has become over-dependant on his inventions.

Proving Gromit correct when Wallace invents as a “smart gnome” that develops a mind of its own and events start to 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 film, made by animation powerhouse Aardman, follows the latest Shaun the Sheep caper The Flight Before Christmas, a Wallace & Gromit spin-off which aired on BBC One last year.

Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer says: “It’s incredibly exciting to be taking British audiences on a cracking new adventure with Wallace & Gromit and to be continuing our long relationship with Aardman and Nick Park following the success of Shaun the Sheep this Christmas.”

Sean Clarke, MD of Aardman, says: “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.”

Christmas 2024 is already beginning to look fantastic.
