After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds preferred fictitious British inventor (or potentially second after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine sidekick are rebounding. Today as part of its ongoing collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix revealed the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture 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 new chick Molly at their brand-new island sanctuary house. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson wont be reprising their functions 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 United States.
As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit film, 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 twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature film revolves around Wallaces newest development: a “smart 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 starts streaming at some point next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut initially on the BBC in the UK before appearing on Netflix in all other areas sometime in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having actually been just recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief movie category, its good to see a lot more claymation movies get the thumbs-up– especially 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 top and two areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated movies of perpetuity, Aardman Studios may have a tough time contending for attention in a time when standard computer-animated films have actually dominated the box office.All products suggested by Engadget are picked by our editorial group, independent of our moms and dad business.
