Wallace & Gromit The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
“The world’s first vegetarian horror movie”
The movie by itself is fun to watch, but the DVD is full of extras that both kids and claymation fans will enjoy. In addition to deleted/alternative scenes and director Nick Park’s commentary, there are the following featurettes:
Goes to Hollywood – traces the history of Wallace and Gromit from when Nick Park was still in film school trying to make A Grand Day Out to The Wrong Trousers (1993) and A Close Shave (1995) winning Oscars for Best Short Animated Film. It includes a clip of Wallace speaking in French, and shorter ones of him doing German, Chinese and Japanese.
Behind the Scenes – shows not only the sets but also the voices behind Wallace (Peter Sallis), Lady Tottington (Helena Bonham Carter) and Victor (Ralph Fiennes).
Studio Tour – an assistant director guides us through possibly every division of Aardman Studios in Bristol — the rigger workshop, the model-making workshop, the place where they do the background painting, the editing room, even the canteen…
How to Build a Bunny – a model-maker demonstrates how the rabbits in the movie were made, starting from the wire armature to the shaping of the plasticine and the adding of beads for the eyes
Stage Fright – a short claymation feature
Cracking Contraptions – Wallace’s inventions in action: the Snoozatron, Shopper 13, and the 525 Crackervac
There are also games and activities meant specially for kids.
