A three-minute behind-the-scenes peek at the upcoming Wallace and Gromit movie from Aardman Animation and DreamWorks Animation has popped up at www.ifilm.com. Viewers can check out brief clips from the film, a look at the animation process and interview snippets with director Nick Park and voiceover co-stars Helena Bonham-Carter and Ralph Fiennes.
Wallace and Gromit are the stars of Nick Park’s Oscar-winning clay animation shorts The Wrong Trousers (1993) and A Close Shave (1995), as well as the nominated A Grand Day Out. The duo recently appeared in Cracking Contraptions, a series of minute-long online misadventures for Atom Films, and had their video game debut with Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo from BAM! Ent.
Their feature film debut has Wallace and Gromit hunting down a mysterious beast which has been rampaging their village’s prize marrows and potatoes just days before the giant vegetable-growing contest. Bonham-Carter will voice new character Lady Tottington, and Fiennes will provide the voice of the vain Lord Victor Quatermaine. The film is rumored to have a budget of around $80 million and is slated for release in October of this year.
