Aardman Animation And Netflix Partner For ‘Wallace And Gromit,’ ‘Chicken Run’ Sequels

After the success of ‘Robin Robin,’ Aardman Studios and Netflix are coming together again for new stop-motion sequels to ‘Wallace And Gromit’ and ‘Chicken Run,’ according to D-Rezzed.

Netflix described the Chicken Run sequel in a press release, “First up is a project incredibly dear to the hearts of Aardman, and something that everyone at Netflix is excited about. Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, the eagerly anticipated sequel to the highest-grossing stop-motion animated film of all time, will be coming exclusively to Netflix in 2023. Over the years, a sequel was often discussed at Aardman but the studio needed the right story and the right partner. Following Robin Robin, another collaboration seemed like a no-brainer and the perfect time to bring back our poultry heroes to the world.”

They also described the ‘Wallace’ sequel as follows, “We’re also delighted to announce the return of the iconic Wallace & Gromit. Nick Park is returning to his roots with a new film starring his beloved (and Oscar-winning) characters. The film will premiere exclusively on Netflix around the world except in the UK, where it will debut first on the BBC before also coming to Netflix. Nick has always wanted — indeed needed — to continue the adventures of these two characters that he knows so uniquely well.”

Sam Fell will be directing Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget which will star Thandiwe Newton, Zachary Levi, Bella Ramsey, Jane Horrocks, Imelda Staunton, Lynn Ferguson, Josie Sedgwick-Davies, David Bradley, Romesh Ranganathan, Daniel Mays, and Nick Mohammed.

The untitled Wallace & Gromit will be directed by Nick Park, who created the franchise and the Shaun the Sheep films. Merlin Crossingham will serve as the Animation Director. Mark Burton will be writing the screenplay based on a story from Nick Park and Mark Burton.

Levi will be taking over the role of Rocky, who was voiced by Fatman actor Mel Gibson in the first film.
