Aardman Animations’ beloved stop-motion duo, Wallace and Gromit, are making a comeback after a 16-year hiatus. Their new adventure, titled “Wallace & Gromit: Vengeance Most Fowl,” is set to premiere this Christmas on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, with a global release on Netflix.

This marks the first Wallace and Gromit outing in 16 years, following 2008’s “A Matter of Loaf and Death.” The 70-minute stop-motion film promises a delightful blend of comedy and suspense. The story revolves around Wallace’s latest invention – a “smart gnome” that seems to take on a life of its own, much to Gromit’s concern. Wallace’s over-reliance on his inventions becomes a source of worry, and Gromit finds himself facing sinister forces to protect his eccentric master’s ability to invent.

Adding to the excitement is the much-anticipated return of Feathers McGraw, the villainous penguin who first tormented Wallace and Gromit in the 1993 Oscar-winning short “Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers.” This marks nearly a 40-year hiatus for the dastardly penguin, and fans are eager to see what his role might be in the new film.

The voice cast boasts a mix of returning and new talents. Ben Whitehead reprises his role as Wallace, while Peter Kay returns as Chief Inspector Mackintosh. Newcomers include Lauren Patel, Reece Shearsmith, Diane Morgan, Adjoa Andoh, and Lenny Henry, all lending their voices to bring the story to life.

Speaking about the film, director and creator Nick Park revealed the inspiration behind the plot: “For years, I’ve toyed with the idea of a movie featuring bad garden gnomes, but the motive always eluded me. Then it struck me – what if Feathers McGraw was somehow involved?” Park also mentioned the frequent fan inquiries about the penguin’s return, making this comeback a special treat for longtime Wallace and Gromit fans. With a touch of “Gnome Noir” thrown in, “Vengeance Most Fowl” promises to be a delightful and suspenseful Christmas adventure for audiences of all ages.
