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

After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds favorite fictitious British developer (or potentially second after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine partner are making a comeback. Today as part of its ongoing partnership with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit movie 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 reprising their roles as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still feature some big-name stars including 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 TV adjustment of The Last of Us.

When it comes to 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 practically two years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature-length film revolves around Wallaces newest creation: a “smart gnome” that has developed a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Notably, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be an around the world exclusive on Netflix when it starts streaming sometime next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture will debut initially on the BBC in the UK before becoming offered on Netflix in all other regions at some point in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief film classification, its good to see a lot more claymation movies get the green light– particularly after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That said, with the original Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having already declared the primary and 2 areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of perpetuity, Aardman Studios might have a difficult time competing for attention in a time when standard computer-animated movies have controlled package office.All items advised by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our parent business.
