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 rebounding. Today as part of its ongoing collaboration 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 picks up after Ginger and Rockys bold escape with the hatching of the couples new chick Molly at their new island sanctuary home. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson will not be repeating their functions as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still include some big-name stars consisting of Thandie Newton (Ginger), Zachary Levi (Rocky) and Bella Ramsey (Molly), the latter of whom is likewise set to play Ellie in HBOs upcoming live-action TV adjustment of The Last of Us.
When it comes to the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit movie, initial series creator Nick Park will be returning as director including a story written by Park and Mark Burton (Madagascar, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun of the Sheep Movie). Slated to get here nearly 20 years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature-length movie revolves around Wallaces latest creation: a “wise gnome” that has established a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Especially, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be an around the world special on Netflix when it starts streaming at some point next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut initially on the BBC in the UK prior to ending up being offered on Netflix in all other areas sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated short movie classification, its nice to see a lot more claymation films get the thumbs-up– specifically after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That stated, with the original Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently claimed the top and 2 spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of all time, Aardman Studios might have a tough time competing for attention in a time when standard computer-animated movies have actually controlled package office.All items advised by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our parent company.
