    i remember a wallace and gromit movie being announced quite some time ago. imdb says its coming out in 2005 and that its called "wallace and gromit and the great vegetable plot" or something like that. are they still working on the tortoise and hare movie? i'm really itching to see what nick park does with this full length movie.

    The Tortoise and the Hare has been pushed back to 2006 at the earliest, so they brought the Wallace and Gromit movie forward to 2005. Full production (i.e. animating) will begin in October. Apart from that, very little is known.

    I'm VERY excited about this project. I loved Chicken Run and all the Wallace and Gromit shorts that preceded it. I can't wait!

    $80 million for claymation...WOW. Surely to be great, but still that's alot. Where does the money go? What eats that big a budget? I've got kids and playdough isn't that expensive [​IMG]

    There is also a bit of info on the bbc site about it. There is also a link to a wallace and grommit short film (a few minutes) there as well.

    If only there was a Wallace and Grommit remake of The Third Man...

    Seriously though, can't wait. I have no doubt that Park can make Wallace and Grommit have fun on the big screen for 90+ minutes.
