LATEST NEWS » WALLACE & GROMIT CELEBRATE THE JUBILEE WITH THE NATIONAL TRUST!
Wallace & Gromit have teamed up with the National Trust for a summer of celebration kicking off with special Diamond Jubilee events on Monday 4th June!
The inventive pair will be hanging the bunting in preparation for over 70 Jubilee tea parties held across the country, where they will be featured in a brand new one minute animation; 'Wallace & Gromit’s Jubilee Bunt-a-thon'. Busy preparing for the big Jubilee weekend, the animation shows our loveable duo decorating a magnificent National Trust manor.
This new short animation will be shown at the events across the country, alongside behind the scenes footage, other Wallace & Gromit classic films and a host of fun activities! There will even be Aardman model makers teaching you how to make a Gromit out of clay.

30 people contributed to making the animation
500 hours were taken to complete it, from storyboard to post production
60 metres of bunting were used to decorate West Wallaby Street and the National Trust manor
30 kilograms of modelling clay was used
...and 8 hours were spent brushing the grass on set with a fork to get it looking just right!

aww so nice to see the duo back cant wait for the full animation nice to see tottington hall again & the top bun van also
best of british!!!
it's not Peter Sallis doing the voice anymore then?
this is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The time taken to perfect everything is just outstanding.
The Aardman team are A-maz-ing!
When's the next w&g film coming out
@samuelhayward i'm pretty sure that is peter sallis
I think it's definately the person who does the games, though I aggree he matches it very well, considering he doesn't have a northern accant. If you listen to it he is very, what's the word? Restrained if you know what I mean, in his throat, as if he's trying to match Peter Sallis.
Well that is pretty much the update at which Wallace and Gromit are doing. Never thought they'd bring them back to Tottington Hall... and as usual, Gromit, doing all the work....
aaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwww I cant wait to see it where can you view the video???
Looking forward to the full show, so good to see then back on film.
So amazing!! Great job, Aardman animators!!
I'm not sure on this one is it Peter Sallis or not that is the question! .....can you let us know Katie Thanks
i don't think it's the voice in the games, the one i the game is much lower. I would bet £10000000 that it is Peter Sallis
pretty please may the Aardman staff please tell us who does the voice?
