Aardman's Peter Lord "Absolutely Assumes" There Will Be More 'Wallace & Gromit'

“I think [creator Nick Park] liked the half-hour format,” he said at FMX.

Aardman Animations co-founder Peter Lord said he “absolutely assumes” the famed U.K. stop-motion animation studio will make more projects with its famous Wallace and Gromit characters.

The characters — the subjects of Aardman stories including the Oscar-winning shorts A Close Shave and The Wrong Trousers, as well as the Oscar-winning animated feature The Curse of the Were-Rabbit — were created by the studio’s Nick Park, who is currently directing Aardman’s upcoming cavemen feature Early Man.

“When Nick’s not drawing cavemen, he’s drawing Wallace & Gromit,” Lord said during a session Thursday at VFX and animation confab FMX in Stuttgart, Germany. “I absolutely assume he will do another, but not a feature. I think he found it was too much. I think he liked the half-hour format.”

Slated to open Jan 31, Early Man follows a tribe of cavemen and features the voice talent of Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Wiliams and Timothy Spall.
