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

After a hiatus of more than a decade, the worlds preferred fictitious British creator (or potentially 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine sidekick are making a comeback. Today as part of its ongoing partnership with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a brand-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 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 big-name 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 adjustment of The Last of Us.

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 arrive practically 20 years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature film focuses on Wallaces latest creation: a “smart 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 motion picture will debut first on the BBC in the UK before becoming readily available on Netflix in all other regions at some point in 2024.
With Aardman and Netlixs stop-motion musical Robin having been recently shortlisted for the Oscars in the animated brief movie category, its good to see much more claymation motion pictures get the green light– specifically 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 top and two spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, Aardman Studios might have a tough time completing for attention in a time when standard computer-animated films have actually dominated the box office.All items suggested by Engadget are chosen by our editorial team, independent of our parent business.
