Wallace & Gromit ‘The Grand Getaway
In ‘The Grand Getaway’, holidays are in the offing for Wallace and Gromit. Sun, sand, and the chance to test out their latest contraption, Auto-Caddy. But Wallace has his dates mixed up – they have to be on the other side of the country in just half an hour! There’s only one thing for it… they’ll take the Rocket. But a mishap with the controls sends Wallace, Gromit and Auto-Caddy hurtling off course. Will this be a holiday to remember?
‘The Grand Getaway’ will be launched on Meta Quest 2, the all-in-one VR headset, enabling users for the first time to walk around, explore and get hands-on (or paws-on!) within the world of Wallace & Gromit, and truly be a part of the pair’sadventures.
A word from producers & director
The project is a co-production between Aardman and the award-winning creators of the VR experience “Spheres” and “Gloomy Eyes” at Atlas V in association with No Ghost in London and Albyon in Lyon. It is funded by Meta Quest. Finbar Hawkins and Bram Ttwheam are co-directing for Aardman with the support of Nick Park, creator of Wallace & Gromit, and Merlin Crossingham, creative director of Wallace & Gromit. Ben Whitehead will again voice Wallace, as he has done for previous Wallace & Gromit projects, following in the footsteps of the late Peter Sallis. ‘The Grand Getaway’ is the next step in Wallace and Gromit’s adventures in immersive spaces, following ‘The Big Fix Up’, which combined the latest in augmented and mixed reality in an epic real-time adventure.
