Aardman is to make a new Wallace and Gromit movie for Netflix with the BBC getting the UK debut. The studio has also announced the voice cast for a new Netflix Chicken Run movie scheduled for release in 2023.
The new Wallace & Gromit movie is scheduled for 2024. Directed by Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park and Merlin Crossingham (Creative Director of Wallace & Gromit), the film sees Gromit becoming concerned that Wallace is a little too dependent on his inventions. When Wallace’s “Smart Gnome” develops a mind of its own, it falls to Gromit to battle sinister forces and save his master…or Wallace may never be able to invent again!
The voice cast for Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, will include Thandiwe Newton (Ginger), Zachary Levi (Rocky), Bella Ramsey (Molly) plus a host of returning voice talent from the first movie, including Jane Horrocks (Babs), Imelda Staunton (Bunty) and Lynn Ferguson (Mac).
Also joining the cast are Josie Sedgwick-Davies (Frizzle), David Bradley (Fowler), Romesh Ranganathan (Nick), Daniel Mays (Fetcher) and Nick Mohammed (Dr Fry).
Directed by Sam Fell, the new film sees Ginger and all the chickens living the dream in their peaceful island sanctuary, far from the dangers of the human world. When she and Rocky hatch a little girl called Molly, Ginger’s happy ending seems complete. But back on the mainland the whole of chicken-kind faces a new and terrible threat. For Ginger and her team – even if it means putting their own hard-won freedom at risk – this time, they’re breaking in!
