Bye, bye Uli Meyer animation, hello Aardman!

Starting on Aardman animation's Pirates, 4 days a week. (So will still be around in London).

Pirates! will see Aardman co-founder Peter Lord back behind the camera for a movie done in hand-crafted stop-motion animation, like Henry Selick's Coraline this year.

Pirates! will be based on ""The Pirates!", the best-selling series of books by Gideon Defoe and is intended to be a swashbuckling adventure with both surreal and broad comedy. The story follows a group of pirates who journey to London, meet Charles Darwin and a talking chimp named Mister Bobo, and an enemy looking to wipe them out.
