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

After a hiatus of more than a years, the worlds preferred fictitious British creator (or perhaps second after Q from James Bond) and his lovable canine sidekick are picking up. Today as part of its continuous partnership with Aardman Animations Netflix announced the arrival of a brand-new Wallace & & Gromit movie and the long-awaited follow up to Chicken Run.
Due out at some point in 2023, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget selects up after Ginger and Rockys daring 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 reprising their functions as the leading chickens, Dawn of the Nuggets cast will still include 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, original series creator 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 two decades after The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wallace and Gromits 2nd feature film focuses on Wallaces latest development: a “smart gnome” that has actually developed a mind of its own. Queue the hijinx.
Especially, unlike Dawn of the Nugget which will be a worldwide unique on Netflix when it starts streaming at some point next year, the new Wallace & & Gromit motion picture will debut initially on the BBC in the UK prior to 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 brief movie category, its good to see even 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 declared the number one and two spots as the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, Aardman Studios might have a difficult time contending for attention in a time when standard computer-animated movies have dominated the box office.All products recommended by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our parent company.
