A Matter of Loaf and Death

posted by xChri5x on - last edited - Viewed by 2.8K users
I was refreshing my knowledge on Wallace & Gromit on wikipedia and found out that another short is being released soon called A Matter of Loaf and Death. It's suppost to be pretty much done and will be aired sometime this year.
It's nice to know that they'll still live on in their original medium too!
The story has Wallace and Gromit becoming bakers. In addition there is a murder mystery, and a new love interest for Wallace in the shape of bread enthusiast Piella Bakewell. Park expressed delight in returning the characters to British television, as "I don't feel like I'm making a film for a kid in some suburb of America — and being told they're not going to understand a joke, or a northern saying."[

  • Ha, I wonder if the games' subtitles will use proper English rather than American English spellings?

    ;)
  • "Proper English?" Well ain't that a hoot 'n a holler!

    Also, awesome news about the new Wallace & Gromit short!
  • Please make sure this game has some British humour in it.
    Oh, and proper English spelling in subtitles would be spiffing.

    *sips tea*
  • This is going to do nothing for the traditional British stereotype. :p British spelling would be fantastic, even though we have to wait longer for games to be translated into loads of different languages in Europe, Americanisms are never changed. 'Favorite', 'color', 'center', etc. Telltale, if the Americanisms are abolished in the game, I will possibly send every member of your team a new sports car.

    Possibly.

    i don't think it would be right without the correct spellings of the words. please for the love of god do the british spellings
  • Thank god I'm not the only one who was bothered about that.

    EDIT: Also, extra kudos if it comes out in Series rather than Seasons.

    Also, cos I just realised we're really hijacking the topic here, I heard about the new one (A Matter of Loaf and Bread) a while back, I'd completely forgotten until now though.

    That sounded tempting until we realized they'd be British sports cars.
  • Hey, at least they didn't offer to cook for you.
