LATEST NEWS » A MATTER OF LOAF AND DEATH COMES TO BBC ONE THIS CHRISTMAS
This Christmas Wallace and Gromit UK fans will be treated to the duo’s latest adventure in the BBC ONE premier of ‘A Matter of Loaf and Death’.
After the incredible success of Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Nick Park is pleased to be returning to the 30-minute format. “I love making films for the cinema but the production of Chicken Run and Curse of the Were-Rabbit were virtually back to back and each film took five years to complete. A Matter of Loaf and Death will be so much quicker to make. I’m delighted to be back into production and back with BBC One with Wallace and Gromit. Over the years the BBC has been incredibly supportive of Wallace and Gromit, this film feels like their homecoming.”
The new film reunites Park with writer Bob Baker who co-wrote both The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave. Sally Lindsay (Coronation Street) will be the voice of Piella Bakewell, alongside Peter Sallis who voices Wallace.
In this new masterpiece viewers will catch up with Wallace and Gromit who have opened a new bakery – Top Bun – and business is booming, not least because a deadly Cereal Killer is targeting all the bakers in town so competition is drying up. Gromit is worried that they may be the next victims but Wallace couldn’t care – he’s fallen head over heels in love with Piella Bakewell, former star of the Bake-O-Lite bread commercials. So Gromit is left to run things on his own when he’d much rather be getting better acquainted with Piella’s lovely pet poodle Fluffles.
Before long Gromit makes a shocking discovery which points to the killer’s true identity. Can he save his master from becoming the next baker to be butchered? And does Fluffles know more than she is saying? It’s a classic ‘who-doughnut’ mystery, as four-time Academy Award winning director Nick Park creates a hilarious new masterpiece in the tradition of ‘master of suspense’ Alfred Hitchcock.

so by christmas do you mean christmas day?I know that the bbc cant say for definite for the christmas line up but will it be on the day?
im recording it
i am sure many people will be recording it. But i hope people don't start putting it on youtube or selling bootlegged copies.
i assume it will be available to watch on bbciplayer for the 7 days after christmas?
katie, is there an american release date and yet?
Will the new film be on BBC America as well?
More people would see it if it ran on one of the original channels - CBS, NBC or ABC. Those channels can generally be tapped into without buying cable. But BBC America would definitely be great!
Our main channels are BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV 1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 (channel 5 is normally blurry).
I used to have just these channels. Freeview includes much more but they are the channels that everyone has.
So BBC isn't a cable channel for you? People will get to see it even if they don't pay for cable?
Yeah. Its the main channel.
COOL! Then most everyone will have a chance to see it - at least in England.
hopefully in the US to
At last something well worth looking forward too amongst all the doom and gloom surrounding us all!

The movie was rated G - so I bet the new film will be G too.
