Statement from Nick Park: “Wallace & Gromit are my friends. I grew very attached to them during the six years that it took us to make A Grand Day Out. We then had a break from each other whilst I was involved in making Creature Comforts and the commercial spin-offs that followed. After a year or so, I found I was itching to work with them again. In The Wrong Trousers, I wanted to tell a bigger story; to test their versatility and character in a more involved plot; to make a film that I would have loved as a child, and yet could enjoy as an adult equally well and without apology.”
