After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds preferred fictitious British developer (or potentially 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine sidekick are rebounding. Today as part of its continuous partnership with Aardman Animations Netflix revealed the arrival of a new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture and the long-awaited follow up to Chicken Run.
Due out at some point in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget chooses 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 repeating their functions 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 also set to play Ellie in HBOs upcoming live-action television adjustment of The Last of United States.
As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit movie, original series developer 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 get here almost twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits second feature-length film revolves around Wallaces most current innovation: a “wise gnome” that has actually established a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Especially, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be an around the world special on Netflix when it begins streaming sometime next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit movie will debut initially on the BBC in the UK before appearing on Netflix in all other areas at some point in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having actually been just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated short movie classification, its nice to see even more claymation films get the green light– particularly 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 2 spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, Aardman Studios may have a hard time competing for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have dominated the box office.All items advised by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our parent business.
