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

After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds preferred fictitious British inventor (or possibly 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine sidekick are rebounding. Today as part of its ongoing collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture and the long-awaited follow up to Chicken Run.
Due out at some point in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget gets after Ginger and Rockys daring escape with the hatching of the couples new chick Molly at their new island sanctuary house. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson will not be repeating their roles as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still include some prominent stars consisting of 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.

As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit film, original series creator 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 two years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature film focuses on Wallaces newest development: a “clever gnome” that has developed a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Notably, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide exclusive on Netflix when it starts streaming sometime next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit film 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 just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief film category, its great to see a lot more claymation films get the green light– especially after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That said, with the initial Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently declared the primary and two spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of perpetuity, Aardman Studios might have a tough time competing for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have actually dominated package office.All items suggested by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our moms and dad business.
