Aardman Animations and Dreamworks have ended their production deal early, after only completing three of five planned films, reports the BBC.
Both companies blamed a difference of focus for the end of their relationship, with Dreamworks wanting to concentrate on CG-based animated films and Aardman returning to its roots in claymation. However, the last two films co-created by the two companies -- Flushed Away and Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit -- have both reported losses.
