What Aardman Is Serving For Dinner
The sixth Wallace and Gromit film will tap into modern day fears over automation, the film will focus on Gromit’s concern that Wallace has become over-dependent on his inventions, which proves justified when Wallace invents a “smart gnome” that seems to develop a mind of its own. As events spiral out of control, it falls to Gromit to put aside his qualms and battle sinister forces or Wallace may never be able to invent again. The film will be directed by Nick Park (who will also co-write) and Merlin Crossingham.
Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget will arrive 23 years after the beloved original and will have an impressive voice cast including: Zachary Levi and Thandiwe Newton as Rocky and Ginger. Bella Ramsay will also feature alongside newcomers Romesh Ranganathan, David Bradley and Daniel Mays, while Jane Horrocks, Imelda Staunton and Lynn Ferguson will reprise roles.
