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 possibly second after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine partner are making a comeback. 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 picks up after Ginger and Rockys daring 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 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 adaptation of The Last of Us.

When it comes to the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit film, 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 almost 20 years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits second feature film focuses on Wallaces latest innovation: a “wise gnome” that has established a mind of its own.

Especially, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide special on Netflix when it begins streaming sometime next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut initially on the BBC in the UK prior to appearing on Netflix in all other areas sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief movie classification, its great to see even more claymation motion pictures get the green light– particularly after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That stated, with the original 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 tough time competing for attention in a time when conventional computer-animated movies have actually dominated the box office.All items recommended by Engadget are selected by our editorial group, independent of our parent business.
