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

After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds preferred fictitious British innovator (or perhaps 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine partner are rebounding. Today as part of its continuous collaboration with Aardman Animations Netflix announced 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 gets after Ginger and Rockys bold escape with the hatching of the couples new chick Molly at their brand-new island sanctuary home. And while Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson wont be repeating their functions 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 TV adaptation of The Last of Us.

When it comes to the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit motion picture, 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 arrive practically twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits second feature film focuses on Wallaces newest creation: a “smart gnome” that has established a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Especially, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide special on Netflix when it starts streaming sometime next year, the brand-new Wallace & & Gromit film will debut initially on the BBC in the UK before ending up being available on Netflix in all other regions at some point in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having actually been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief film classification, its good to see even more claymation motion pictures get the thumbs-up– particularly after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That said, with the original Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently declared the number one and 2 spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of perpetuity, Aardman Studios may have a tough time contending for attention in a time when conventional computer-animated movies have controlled package office.All products recommended by Engadget are chosen by our editorial group, independent of our parent business.
