20 years after the first Chicken Run and we will now have a sequel to the hit stop motion animation from Aardman. It’s certainly hard to believe that the first film hit cinemas over two decades ago and we should thank Netflix for green lighting this unique and fun film.
Chicken Run centred on a cockerel named Rocky who inadvertently lands in a chicken farm. Charismatic and full of himself, the chickens in the coop see him as an opportunity to escape their evil owners. Released in 2000, the film would go on to rake in over USD220 million at the box-office.
The new film will take place several years after the first film up with Ginger, who is living in a human-free chicken paradise and raising a daughter named Molly. However the young chick quickly grows and harbours a dream to leave the island. While this is happening, Ginger has to pull together with her fellow chickens to stop a glooming threat from destroying their peaceful lives.
Chicken Run 2 from Aardman Animation and Netflix will be directed by Sam Fell (ParaNorman, Flushed Away).
