Wallace and Gromit - A Matter of Loaf and Death

Some good news out there for Wallace & Gromit fans, Nick Park (the co-writer and director of all of the previous Wallace & Gromit films) and the Aardman Studio have been hard at work on the next installment of the series. Entitled "Wallace & Gromit in 'A Matter of Loaf and Death'", the new film will be a short like the previous films "Wallace & Gromit in The Wrong Trousers" and "A Grand Day Out with Wallace & Gromit".

Here is a quick synopsis of the events that are occurring in the new installment:

Wallace and Gromit have a brand new business. The conversion of 62 West Wallaby Street is complete and impressive, the whole house is now a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms. Huge mixing bowls are all over the place and everything is covered with a layer of flour. On the roof is a ‘Wallace patent-pending’ old-fashioned windmill. The transformation is perfect. Although business is booming, Gromit is concerned by the news that 12 local bakers have ‘disappeared’ this year – but Wallace isn’t worried. He’s too distracted and ‘dough-eyed’ in love with local beauty and bread enthusiast, Piella Bakewell, to be of much help.
The new short is set to hit televisions in the U.K. sometime during December of this year, and I personally cannot be happier. I am a huge fan of the series and the characters which are almost twenty years old! I think that the production stills look fantastic. You can keep up with updates about the new film over at their website, and you can check out the rest of the production stills here.
