New Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run movies are coming to Netflix

After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds preferred fictitious British innovator (or perhaps 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine sidekick are picking up. Today as part of its continuous collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a new Wallace & & Gromit film 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 daring escape with the hatching of the couples new chick Molly at their new island sanctuary home. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson will not be reprising their roles as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still feature some prominent 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 adjustment of The Last of United States.

When it comes to the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit movie, original series creator Nick Park will be returning as director including a story composed by Park and Mark Burton (Madagascar, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun of the Sheep Movie). Slated to arrive practically two decades after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature film revolves around Wallaces newest invention: a “wise gnome” that has actually developed a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Significantly, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be an around the world special on Netflix when it begins streaming at some point next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut initially on the BBC in the UK before appearing on Netflix in all other regions sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief film classification, its nice to see even more claymation films get the green light– particularly after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That stated, with the initial Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently 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 completing for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have dominated the box office.All products suggested by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our parent business.
