Amazon gets streaming rights to Wallace & Gromit; “Amazon has streaming video?!” says America

Joining the ridiculously delightful Wallace and Gromit on Prime are other projects from Aardman Animations, the studio that produces the shorts, including the children’s series Shaun the Sheep and Timmy Time. Also, the deal includes the classic series Rex the Runt. We hadn’t heard of it before now, but the Deadline report we are rewriting for this article lists it as “classic,” so we’ll take their word for it. The deal doesn’t appear to include Aardman’s various movies, including the acclaimed Chicken Run and the Oscar-winning Wallace & Gromit film (which is, you have to admit, a little confusing). – Todd VanDerWerff, The A.V.
