With a history spanning over 40 years, the instantly recognisable work of Aardman has become as synonymous for its ‘Britishness’ as a good cup of tea, discussing the weather, and strawberries and cream during Wimbledon. Now three of the studio’s most beloved characters – Wallace, Gromit, and Shaun the Sheep – are set to be immortalised in a new range of pot feet by Jardinopia as part of an exclusive global licensing deal, helping the characters to find a new home and fan base amongst a nation of gardeners.
The Jardinopia/ Aardman ranges will be officially unveiled to the market at Glee 2019, where three sets will be revealed; two showcasing Wallace & Gromit characters undertaking gardening tasks, and one for Shaun the Sheep, the perfect accompaniment to A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon - the second Shaun the Sheep feature which is set to hit UK cinemas 18th October. 2019 also marks the 30th anniversary since Wallace & Gromit first appeared on our screens in A Grand Day Out. Fast forward to today and the studio is now home to 4 Oscars® and an endlessly impressive list of awards and accolades, not forgetting a worldwide audience that continue to love and adore the work of the Bristol-based studio.
