The last time this happened was in 2008 when the creator Nick Park was nominated for an Oscar for "Wallace & Gromit: A battle for life and bread".

The as yet unnamed sequel will premiere in 2024 and the plot is right on time.

Gromit has begun to worry that Wallace is a little too dependent on his inventions and when Wallace's latest "smart creation" develops its own mind, it falls to Gromit to fight ominous forces and save his master.
