After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds favorite fictitious British innovator (or perhaps 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his adorable 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 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 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 feature some prominent 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 television adaptation of The Last of United States.
When it comes to the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit motion picture, original 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 get here nearly two years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature film focuses on Wallaces newest innovation: a “clever gnome” that has established 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 at some point next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut initially on the BBC in the UK before ending up being offered 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 category, its great to see much more claymation motion pictures get the green light– specifically after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That said, with the original Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently claimed the number one and 2 areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of all time, Aardman Studios may have a hard time completing for attention in a time when conventional computer-animated films have actually dominated package office.All products suggested by Engadget are chosen by our editorial team, independent of our moms and dad company.
