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

After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds preferred fictitious British inventor (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 revealed the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit film and the long-awaited follow up to Chicken Run.
Due out sometime in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget gets 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 will not be reprising their roles 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 also set to play Ellie in HBOs upcoming live-action television adaptation of The Last of Us.

When it comes to the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit film, initial 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 second feature-length film revolves around Wallaces most current innovation: a “clever gnome” that has actually developed a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Significantly, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide special on Netflix when it begins streaming sometime next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit movie will debut first on the BBC in the UK prior to ending up being readily available on Netflix in all other regions sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having actually been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated short movie classification, its good to see even more claymation motion pictures get the green light– especially after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That stated, with the original Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently declared the number one and 2 spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of all time, Aardman Studios might have a difficult time competing for attention in a time when standard computer-animated films have controlled the box office.All items advised by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our parent company.
