After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds favorite fictitious British innovator (or possibly 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine partner are picking up. Today as part of its ongoing collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit movie and the long-awaited sequel 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 house. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson wont 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 United States.
When it comes to the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit motion picture, original 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 arrive almost 20 years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits second feature-length film focuses on Wallaces newest invention: a “wise gnome” that has actually developed a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Especially, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide exclusive on Netflix when it begins streaming at some point next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit movie will debut initially on the BBC in the UK prior to appearing on Netflix in all other regions sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief movie classification, its great to see even more claymation films get the green light– 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 number one and two 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 conventional computer-animated films have dominated the box office.All items suggested by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our parent business.
