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

After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds favorite fictitious British inventor (or possibly second after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine sidekick are making a return. Today as part of its ongoing collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit movie and the long-awaited follow up 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 home. 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 also set to play Ellie in HBOs upcoming live-action TV adaptation of The Last of Us.

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 arrive nearly twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature-length film focuses on Wallaces most current invention: a “clever gnome” that has established a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Notably, 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 movie will debut first on the BBC in the UK prior to ending up being offered on Netflix in all other regions at some point in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having actually been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief film category, its nice to see a lot more claymation films get the thumbs-up– especially 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 top and 2 areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of perpetuity, Aardman Studios might have a tough time completing for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have actually dominated package office.All products recommended by Engadget are chosen by our editorial team, independent of our moms and dad business.
