Nick Park considers reviving Wallace and Gromit Content Exchange

Nick Park is considering reviving Wallace and Gromit.

The 60-year-old animator is most famous for creating the clay animation comedy series, which led to multiple film successes - including 'A Grand Day Out', 'The Wrong Trousers' and 'A Close Shave' - and Nick has now revealed he's been contemplating returning to the stories.

He confessed: "I've just been taking a bit of a break and being slightly off the radar for a bit. But I can't stop.

"I've been mulling over and writing ideas. I'd love to come back to Wallace and Gromit, for example. But for me, they'll always be there. And I can't help but think of ideas for them. They're my first love really."

Nick explained why he particularly relishes working with the characters.

He told Collider: "I remember when I discovered with Gromit, if I just move his brow up-and-down, it sort of said everything. You suddenly imagine the ... he had a voice and an expression and a whole personality.

"It's somehow ... clay enabled me to just be very simple and basic with him. And I feel like Gromit was born from clay, really.

"If I could design him on a computer screen, I know you can do fantastic CG animation, as so many people prove it - but for me, it just works as clay. And in a way, that helps now single us out from everything else that's around."
