BBC Buys Rights to Air WnG Movie in 2008

Wednesday I learned that the BBC has recently purchased the airing rights for the new Wallace and Gromit movie in 2008.

The film will be shown in UK cinemas from October, while the BBC plans to show it in 2008.

BBC controller of acquisitions George McGhee said: “The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is the hotly anticipated family film of the year and we’re delighted to be able to bring it to a BBC audience.

“This deal continues our strong relationship with Aardman and we’re pleased to able to acquire quality British films as part of our commitment to investment in British talent.”
