The return of Wallace and Gromit: What will the new movie tell us?
For now, the new untitled production of The Adventures of Wallace and Gromit will be the first film about the famous duo since the 2008 short film Wallace and Gromit: A Question of Life and Death. It will be the sixth installment of the animated adventures of the couple. Below is the trailer for the feature film “Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Rabbit” (2005):
This time around, Gromit will fear that Wallace is relying too much on his inventions. Evidence will soon follow: Wallace will build an “intelligent gnome” that will begin to think for himself. Things will quickly get out of hand and Gromit will have to contend with an evil force – or else Wallace may invent anything new.
We all love Wallace and Gromit at Aardman. They are like family to us. We couldn’t be more excited to do another movie with them. When Nick Park came up with the idea of a “smart gnome,” we all agreed that Wallace wouldn’t have resisted such a concept. We’re sure the audience won’t be able to resist this story either, announces Shaun Clark, Managing Director of Aardman Studios.
The film will be shown for the first time in Great Britain on the BBC. The distributor for the rest of the world is Netflix.
“Runaway Chickens 2” – first details
Meanwhile, Netflix revealed the first details of the “Runaway Chickens” sequel called “Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget.” Watch the first official image from the movie:
Rocky and Ginger, after a successful escape from a poultry farm, settle on a quiet island, where they hatch a baby girl, Molly. Unfortunately, a new danger appears in the old chicken house. So Ginger and her crew must risk their freedom – this time to storm the farm.
The new protagonists will return to the movie, but most of the voices will be provided by new actors. Zachary Levi (“Shazam!”) will take on the role of Rocky after Mel Gibson, and Thandiwe Newton (“Westworld”) will play Ginger, played by Julia Sawalha. Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) will be the voice of Molly. Additionally, the cast includes Romesh Ranganathan, David Bradley and Danielle Mays as well as Jane Horrocks, Imelda Staunton and Lynne Ferguson who have been known since the first installment.
