After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds favorite fictitious British developer (or perhaps 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine partner are making a resurgence. Today as part of its ongoing collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix revealed the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture and the long-awaited follow up to Chicken Run.
Due out sometime in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget selects up after Ginger and Rockys bold escape with the hatching of the couples new chick Molly at their new island sanctuary house. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson will not be repeating their roles as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still include some big-name stars consisting of Thandie Newton (Ginger), Zachary Levi (Rocky) and Bella Ramsey (Molly), the latter of whom is likewise set to play Ellie in HBOs upcoming live-action television adaptation of The Last of United States.
As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit movie, initial 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 arrive nearly 20 years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits second feature film revolves around Wallaces most current development: a “clever gnome” that has developed a mind of its own.

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 prior to appearing on Netflix in all other regions sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated short film category, its great to see even more claymation films get the green light– specifically after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That said, with the original Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently declared the number one and two spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of all time, Aardman Studios may have a hard time contending for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated films have actually controlled the box office.All items recommended by Engadget are picked by our editorial group, independent of our moms and dad company.
