In Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, an Oscar-nominated plasticine opus, quirky inventor Wallace and his dog Gromit are called on to capture an ominous creature that’s pillaging the town’s prized courgettes and aubergines just days before the annual veg-off. Every detail and frame is meticulously considered, producing a satisfying assortment of witty nods to pop culture, Hollywood, and, of course, cheese.

EXTRAS As you might expect from a tedious process that yields 100 seconds of footage per week, not much hits the cutting-room floor; still, there are nine deleted scenes, some in raw, 2-D animated story-board form, including two alternate endings. While a brief, overly polished making-of falls flat, the animated short film Stage Fright (starring more talented pooches), a behind-the-scenes studio tour, and a minidoc tracing W&G‘s climb from grad-student creations to household names all convey the oddball Aardman culture.
