In ‘The Grand Getaway’, holidays are within the offing for Wallace and Gromit. Solar, sand, and the possibility to check out their newest contraption, Auto-Caddy. However Wallace has his dates blended up – they should be on the opposite aspect of the nation in simply half an hour! There’s just one factor for it… they’ll take the Rocket.

I used to be a giant fan of Madrid Noir – it made some attention-grabbing stylistic decisions with the way it framed narrative in an immersive medium. There have been sections the place the animated characters have been staged like a stage play occurring round you, with dramatic lighting and environments that just about regarded like a film set. The historical past of robust stylistic presentation makes me excited to see what a Wallace and Gromit collaboration with Aardman will appear to be. On paper, it’s a match made in heaven.
