Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Prepare to experience the nation’s favourite stop-motion heroes as you’ve never smelled them before! We’re bringing you a brand new Scratch ‘n Sniff cinema event featuring Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.  From Stinking Bishop to Bunny Burps, immerse your senses in the duo’s first feature-length film from Aardman, complete with giant vegetables, ‘Anti-Pesto’, and a mysterious beast on the loose. Promising olfactory amusement for audiences of all ages.

Specially commissioned for Anim18 and created by ‘Scratch ‘n Sniff Cinema presents’ – an occasional series from producer and artist Bren O’Callaghan and illustrator Simon Misra. The team have previously scored scent accompaniments to films such as The Wicker Man, The Goonies and Matilda (as part of Roald Dahl on Film).

“We spend ages working on how our films look and sound because that is how cinema works. Entertainment for your eyes and ears. So having the ability to add smell to the cinematic experience is tantalising, your nose will be left out no longer.”

~ Merlin Crossingham, Creative Director for Wallace & Gromit
