Wallace and Gromit get cracking to help celebrate Queen's jubilee
WALLACE and Gromit creator Nick Park has made a short film featuring the animated duo to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The one-minute short features the pair preparing to mark the royal celebrations.
Mr Park, right, of Bristol-based Aardman Studios teamed up with the National Trust to make the film called A Jubilee Bunt-a-thon. It features the pair scaling ladders to hoist bunting up around a trust-run manor, and will be shown at 14 National Trust locations, including Tyntesfield in Wraxall, on June 4. A behind-the-scenes documentary will be screened at the trust's Jubilee parties.
Mr Park said: "I have to pinch myself when I think how far Wallace and Gromit have come. From ideas in my head, to 'film stars' working with great organisations such as the National Trust, which the nation holds dear to its heart.

"Wallace and Gromit are in for a cracking summer at the National Trust, which has a special place in my heart from a childhood memory of completing a paint-by-numbers at Stourhead, to Montacute House, on which we based Tottington Hall in The Curse Of The Were-rabbit."
Tony Berry, of the National Trust, said: "The National Trust and Wallace and Gromit are two of Britain's greatest treasures and we felt it fitting that in this summer of celebration we should bring them together."
Wallace and Gromit already have the royal seal of approval, with the Duchess of Cornwall saying earlier this year that they are her husband's "favourite people in the world".
