wallace and gromit the big pick-up

The clumsy inventor Wallace and his loyal dog Gromit have been gracing our screens for more than 30 years. Aardman Animation’s crowning achievement, Wallace & Gromit feel like it’s been a part of our cultural landscape forever, due in part to the unchanging stop-motion animation and the classic slapstick situations the duo put themselves in.

But Aardman is changing things up in a big way for Wallace & Gromit. The studio is introducing the first Wallace & Gromit augmented reality adventure with Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix-Up. That’s right, Wallace’s Rube Goldberg devices are about to get interactive.

Wallace and Gromit studio

In 2018, huge media corporations are like those rolling cities in Mortal Engines: they’re always on the hunt for a smaller company to consume. But Aardman Animations, the stop-motion animation company responsible for projects like Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run, isn’t interested in being eaten up by a behemoth like Disney, Comcast, or WarnerMedia. In a preemptive move to make sure they don’t become the next 20th Century Fox, the founders of the company have given a 75% stake in Aardman to the people who deserve it most: its own employees.
