Disney's Meet The Robinsons released its first image. The movie will be released in 2006. The familiar story, which is based on the book by William Joyce, is about a 12-year-old boy who invents a time machine that recovers forgotten memories. Time travels, family rescue and much more will be making the Robinsons an enjoyable time in theatres.

  Fire in Aardman

Aardman Animations joy of Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of Were Rabbit was spoilt by a fire in Aardman facilities. We are sharing their feelings and hoping a rapid aftermath. Here is the statement by Aardman:

"Fire destroys historical Aardman artefacts

On the day that Aardman celebrate a chart-topping opening weekend in the US with Wallace & Gromit 'The Curse of the Were-rabbit', news of a fire at our storage unit in Bristol has been devastating.

The facility used to store sets, awards, and historical artefacts, is not a part of the Aardman studio, and we are glad to report that no Aardman staff have been affected. However, we have lost a number of irreplaceable storyboards, awards, props and pieces of film memorabilia from our 30 year history.

None of the material from the new Wallace & Gromit film ‘The Curse of the Wererabbit’ was in storage at the time, but we have lost many original sets from Chicken Run, Creature Comforts, and the three Wallace & Gromit short films, that were used for reference and toured around the world for exhibition.

This will not in any way affect existing or future Aardman productions as 100% of sets and props are purpose built for each production."
