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. 

For more information on the National Trust’s Jubilee events and how you can get involved, visit the National Trust website.

To be in with a chance of winning a family pass for 2 adults and 2 children to visit a National Trust property, enter our competition!

This special new one minute animation took 3 months to create! Here are some more fun facts about its making...

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!

Watch some of the new animation in the clip below!

Find out more about how the animation was made in this making-of video...

When's the next w&g film coming out

wallace05man Posted: May 4th 2012

@samuelhayward i'm pretty sure that is peter sallis

samuelhayward Posted: May 5th 2012

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.

Gromit lad Posted: May 6th 2012

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....

Behind the scenes of the making of the National Trust video


wallace05man Posted: May 21st 2012

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

samuelhayward Posted: May 22nd 2012

pretty please may the Aardman staff please tell us who does the voice?

puppylove Posted: May 25th 2012
