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 second after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine partner are picking up. 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 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 brand-new chick Molly at their brand-new island sanctuary home. 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 prominent 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 United States.

As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit motion picture, 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 get here almost twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits second feature 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 unique on Netflix when it begins streaming sometime next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture will debut initially on the BBC in the UK before 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 been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief movie classification, its nice to see even more claymation motion pictures 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 claimed the number one and 2 areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, Aardman Studios may have a hard time contending for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have actually dominated the box office.All products recommended by Engadget are picked by our editorial team, independent of our parent business.
