Aardman makes Arthur Christmas and Pirates! AARGH!

Posted on 28 April 2009 by Quaid

Pirate growls rock.  You know it, I know it, and Aardman Animations seems to know it.

chickenrunThe dual stop-motion and CG animation studio will produce two new features according to the trades: Pirates! and Arthur Christmas.

The swashbuckler will be produced in stop-motion, keeping alive the tradition of Wallace and Gromit and the fantastic Chicken Run.  The creators of that film will be at the helm once again.  It’s based on the book ”The Pirates! (in an Adventure with Scientists),” by Gideon Defoe and is described as a “surreal and broad comedy” involving Charles Darwin.  Sold.

Arthur Christmas will be produced entirely with computer graphics and “will tackle the question of how Santa delivers all his presents in one night.”  Based on this very limited information, I’m thinking that Pirates! is really the film to follow.

Films will be co-produced with those lovely people at Sony Pictures.
