​New Wallace And Gromit Project Is In Progress, Nick Park Confirms

We have some good news for Wallace and Gromit fans (i.e. all of us), as creator Nick Park has said the iconic duo will be 'up to their old antics' once again, confirming that a new project is currently in the works.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the Aardman director explained he had a few ideas for the beloved double act.

Park hasn't ruled out another Wallace and Gromit movie, but has admitted it's probably more likely to be a series of short films for the small screen.

"I think having just reached 60, you sort of start to think how much can I do, you know?" he said.

"I've got so many ideas, and feature films just take so long. So, I'm not saying 'no' but at the moment, a half hour seems far more attractive, I must say."

Park explained even a 30-minute short film takes around one year to make, and that the rate hasn't really changed since he started making films with stop-motion clay characters three decades ago.

"[Completing] three seconds a day is quite a good day, and it's the same at Aardman now," he said.

However long the finished product ends up, Park is promising us more great stuff from the hapless inventor and his four-legged sidekick.

"I feel I'm onto a good idea," he added.

"I can't give too much away because it would spoil it really, but it's Wallace and Gromit up to their old antics."

What's more, Park is thinking about the possibility of creating more material for the Creature Comforts mockumentary series, saying he's always loved the idea of doing more.

"There are so many people out there you can interview so you'll never run out of material and diverse characters," he said.

"I meet people and think they are definitely on the list; I'd love to come back and interview them."

In the meantime, you can catch other Wallace and Gromit classics over on Netflix.

The four Wallace and Gromit shorts A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave and A Matter of Loaf and Death were added to the streaming service in February.

And the duo's feature-length movie, 2005's Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, is also on there, should you want to settle down to something a bit longer.
