The iconic animation duo is having its World Premiere at The 80th Venice Film Festival
Get ready for an exciting journey into the world of Wallace & Gromit as the beloved animation duo takes center stage at the 80th Venice Film Festival’s Immersive Selection.
Premiering from August 31 to September 9, during the renowned Venice Film Festival, “The Grand Getaway” promises an extraordinary experience that will transport participants from the familiar landscapes of West Wallaby Street to the uncharted territories of deep space.
The immersive experience unfolds across twelve distinct chapters, allowing users to switch between AutoCaddy, Gromit, and Wallace to participate in a cinematic virtual reality experience full of the interactions that make VR so fun and unique.
Wallace & Gromit in The Grand Getaway is co-directed by Finbar Hawkins and Bram Ttwheam at Aardman, with the invaluable support of Academy Award® winner and Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park, promises to be an unforgettable escapade to experience in virtual reality.
The first glimpse into the VR experience was revealed earlier this year as part of the Future Games Show, and now in its premiere at Venice, attendees will have the opportunity to step into their world for the first time.
Attendees of the Venice Film Festival with accreditation will enjoy access to the full lineup of titles. For those not accredited at the Festival but interested in participating a special Venice Immersive Pass will be made available. The program will be open for the public and all other festival-accredited visitors from August 31 to September 9.
The project is a co-production between multi award-winning animation studio Aardman and the award-winning creators of the VR experience Spheres and Gloomy Eyes at Atlas V, in association with No Ghost (Madrid Noir) and Albyon, published by immersive distributor and publisher Astrea, and with the support from the Meta Quest team.
