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

After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds favorite fictitious British creator (or possibly 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine partner are rebounding. Today as part of its ongoing partnership with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a new Wallace & & Gromit movie and the long-awaited follow up to Chicken Run.
Due out sometime in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget chooses up 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 big-name stars including 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 TV adaptation of The Last of Us.

As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit movie, original series developer Nick Park will be returning as director featuring a story written by Park and Mark Burton (Madagascar, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun of the Sheep Movie). Slated to show up almost 2 years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature-length film revolves around Wallaces latest innovation: a “wise gnome” that has developed a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Notably, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide special on Netflix when it starts streaming at some point next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut initially on the BBC in the UK prior to ending up being readily available on Netflix in all other regions 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 brief movie classification, its nice to see a lot more claymation movies 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 already claimed the top and 2 areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of perpetuity, Aardman Studios might have a difficult time contending for attention in a time when conventional computer-animated films have dominated package office.All products suggested by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our parent business.
