5. The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012)
Based on the book of the same name by Gideon Defoe, The Pirates! was Aardman’s first stop-motion ‘claymation’ film since Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit in 2005. Boasting a host of famous voices, this film follows the Pirate Captain and his crew of amateur pirates in their attempt to win the Pirate of the Year competition. This imaginative and amusing feature grossed highly at the box office and only narrowly missed out on an Academy Award in 2013.
4. Arthur Christmas (2011)

This is Aardman’s first collaboration with Sony Pictures, and it makes for a lovely Christmas film to watch come each December.
