After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds favorite fictitious British creator (or perhaps 2nd after Q from James Bond) and his adorable canine sidekick are rebounding. Today as part of its continuous partnership with Aardman Animations Netflix revealed 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 brand-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 big-name 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 adjustment of The Last of Us.
As for the still-untitled Wallace & & Gromit motion picture, initial series developer 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 arrive almost twenty years after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature-length film focuses on Wallaces most current development: a “smart gnome” that has actually established a mind of its own.

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 prior to ending up being 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 short film classification, its great to see even more claymation motion pictures get the green light– particularly after the bomb that was 2018s Early Man. That said, with the initial Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit having currently claimed the number one and two areas as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, Aardman Studios may have a difficult time competing for attention in a time when traditional computer-animated movies have actually dominated the box office.All products suggested by Engadget are chosen by our editorial team, independent of our moms and dad business.
