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 potentially second after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine sidekick are rebounding. Today as part of its continuous 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 new chick Molly at their brand-new island sanctuary house. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson will not be repeating their functions as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still include 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 TV 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 featuring a story composed by Park and Mark Burton (Madagascar, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun of the Sheep Movie). Slated to show up nearly 20 years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature film revolves around Wallaces latest invention: a “smart gnome” that has actually established a mind of its own.

Notably, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be an around the world special on Netflix when it begins streaming sometime next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture 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 actually been just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated short film category, its great to see a lot more claymation motion pictures get the thumbs-up– 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 two spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of perpetuity, Aardman Studios may have a difficult time contending for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have actually controlled the box office.All items suggested by Engadget are chosen by our editorial group, independent of our moms and dad company.
