After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds preferred fictitious British innovator (or perhaps second after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine sidekick are picking up. Today as part of its continuous collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit film and the long-awaited sequel to Chicken Run.
Due out at some point in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget gets after Ginger and Rockys bold escape with the hatching of the couples brand-new chick Molly at their brand-new island sanctuary house. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson wont be repeating their functions as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still feature some big-name stars consisting of Thandie Newton (Ginger), Zachary Levi (Rocky) and Bella Ramsey (Molly), the latter of whom is also set to play Ellie in HBOs upcoming live-action television adaptation of The Last of United States.
As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit film, original series creator Nick Park will be returning as director including a story written by Park and Mark Burton (Madagascar, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun of the Sheep Movie). Slated to get here nearly twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits second feature film revolves around Wallaces newest innovation: a “clever gnome” that has actually established a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Especially, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide exclusive on Netflix when it starts streaming sometime next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture will debut first on the BBC in the UK before appearing on Netflix in all other areas sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having actually been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated short film classification, its great to see even more claymation movies get the green light– especially after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That said, with the initial Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having already declared the number one and two areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, Aardman Studios might have a tough time competing for attention in a time when conventional computer-animated movies have actually controlled the box office.All products recommended by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our moms and dad business.
