The new Wallace & Gromit brings back an iconic enemy (trailer)

No, it's not the were-rabbit!

Almost twenty years after the release of Wallace & Gromit and the Mystery of the Were-Rabbit, our two favorite Brits made of plasticine are back in action in a brand new feature film. Titled Wallace & Gromit: Vengeance Most Fowlthis sequel planned for Netflix has just received its first trailer, which teases the return of a character that fans have always hoped for but no longer expected: that of Feathers McGraw.

The red plastic glove doesn't deceive. Then his face appears. This is indeed the merciless thieving penguin, antagonist of the short film Wallace & Gromit: Bad Pants (winner of the Oscar for best animated short film in 1994). The last time the heroes of the Aardman studio saw him, he was pretending to be a chicken to escape the police. Neutralized, he was locked up in a zoo. Thirty years later, his sentence seems to have been served, and out of prison, he is ready to find out more with those who led him to the hole.

As for the two residents, Gromit is worried about Wallace who is becoming too dependent on his inventions. Recently, he developed an intelligent garden gnome who develops an evil spirit…

The creator of the franchise, Nick Parkexplained to Variety the origin of the project:

“It occurred to me that the most asked question I get from fans I meet is: Is Feathers McGraw, the evil penguin from Wallace & Gromit: Bad Pants, released thirty years ago, will it come back? We've had fun bringing him back in cameo form up until now, but now, three decades later, it seemed like the right time. And then it suddenly came to me: What if Feathers was involved in this garden gnome thing?”

In addition to the original voices, the cast includes: Lauren Patel, Reece Shearsmith, Diane Morgan (Planet Cunk), Adjoa Andoh (The Bridgerton Chronicles) and Lenny Henry. Excerpts will be screened at the Annecy Festival, which takes place this year from June 9 to 14.

Wallace & Gromit: Vengeance Most Fowl will then be released on the BBC and in France on Netflix for the end-of-year holidays.
