Netflix Previews Wallace & Gromit, Zack Snyder’s Twilight of the Gods

Attendees at Netflix‘s presentation for the Annecy Animation Festival got exclusive glimpses at footage from Wallace & Gromit: Vengeance Most Fowl and Zack Snyder‘s Twilight of the Gods, among other forthcoming animated projects heading to the streamer.

Snyder and producing partner Deborah Snyder took the stage to share sequences from their animated series that is inspired by Norse mythology and hits Netflix on Sept. 19. This included footage of a dragon battle that involved copious amounts of blood.

“[It’s] shocking for me that the main characters form a team,” Zack Snyder quipped about Twilight of the Gods, given the similar themes from his previous work that includes 300, Watchmen and Justice League. He jokingly added, “I can’t wait to do a single character.”

Snyder, who previously directed the animated feature Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, explained that his process for animation doesn’t differ greatly from how he typically works. “The evolution is similar to how I evolve a live-action scene,” he shared. He added about the new series, “It’s an amazingly pure brain-to-animation process. It’s incredibly rewarding.”

Also taking the stage were Wallace & Gromit: Vengeance Most Fowl co-directors Nick Park and Merlin Crossingham, who discussed their stop-motion animation film that hits Netflix in early 2025.

“It’s been on the cards for about 10 years, really,” Park said of the film that features the return of his beloved creations Wallace and Gromit.

Footage from the movie included inventor Wallace using his “Get-U-Up Delux,” a new version of his contraption that helps get him out of bed. Also shown were scenes featuring Norbot, an android gnome that Wallace hopes will make his life easier, and familiar franchise villain Feathers McGraw, who is likely the world’s most diabolical penguin.

“What we explore with Norbot is: Technology is good, but who’s controlling it?” Crossingham teased.

Among other projects featured at the event was the animated fantasy feature Spellbound, launching in November. Director Vicky Jenson was onhand to share footage of a girl who learns his parents are actual monsters.
