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

After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds favorite fictitious British innovator (or potentially second after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine sidekick are making a return. Today as part of its continuous collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix revealed the arrival of a new Wallace & & Gromit movie and the long-awaited sequel 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 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 feature 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 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 featuring a story composed by Park and Mark Burton (Madagascar, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun of the Sheep Movie). Slated to get here nearly two years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature-length movie revolves around Wallaces newest innovation: a “smart gnome” that has established 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 at some point next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut first on the BBC in the UK before ending up being offered on Netflix in all other regions sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated short film classification, its nice to see a lot more claymation movies get the thumbs-up– specifically 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 primary and 2 areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of all time, Aardman Studios might have a tough time completing for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have dominated package office.All products advised by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our parent business.
