Lionsgate, Hit Entertainment Celebrate 20th Anniversary of Wallace and Gromit17 Dec, 2008 By: Michael Lee
Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment are set to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the “Wallace and Gromit” series by releasing three award-winning animated titles Feb. 10, 2009 (prebook Jan. 4). The three films will cost $9.98 each.
The films are A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave.
A Grand Day Out features the pair as they head to the moon to replenish their lack of cheese. In A Close Shave the two are involuntarily involved in a scheme where Gromit is framed and sent to jail, and Wallace and his friends must save him. And Wallace gets himself into trouble of his own when he puts on a pair of mechanical trousers controlled by a penguin in The Wrong Trousers.
Each title includes a commentary with creator Nick Park, a featurette and “cracking contraptions.” The titles were previously released as Wallace & Gromit: Three Amazing Adventures, which sold more than 750,000 units, according to the companies.
