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

After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds preferred fictitious British developer (or potentially second after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine sidekick are making a resurgence. Today as part of its continuous partnership with Aardman Animations Netflix revealed the arrival of a new Wallace & & Gromit film and the long-awaited sequel to Chicken Run.
Due out sometime in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget selects up after Ginger and Rockys daring escape with the hatching of the couples brand-new chick Molly at their 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 television adjustment 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 composed by Park and Mark Burton (Madagascar, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun of the Sheep Movie). Slated to get here nearly twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature-length film focuses on Wallaces newest innovation: a “clever gnome” that has actually established a mind of its own.

Especially, 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 areas sometime 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 even more claymation films 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 two spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, Aardman Studios may have a hard time competing for attention in a time when conventional computer-animated films have controlled the box office.All items recommended by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our moms and dad company.
