Netflix confirms title of Chicken Run sequel and it's incredible

Everyone stay calm – a Chicken Run sequel is coming next year.

The animated film won everyone’s heart in 2000, receiving so much critical acclaim, it became the highest grossing stop-motion animation film of all time.

The team behind the magic at Aardman have been dreaming of creating a sequel for a long time, and we’re buzzing as much as they are that it’s finally happening.

The studio said that they’ve been waiting for ‘the right story and the right partner’ for a long time.

Following the success of Robin Robin – an acclaimed musical short that even bagged an Oscar nom – the studio felt this was the perfect opportunity to ‘bring back our poultry heroes’ at long last.

Not only do we know that the second instalment will land in 2023, but it’ll hatch on Netflix, who have confirmed its amazing title.

The streaming giant shared a tweet reading: ‘The CHICKEN RUN sequel is coming, and it’s called… CHICKEN RUN: DAWN OF THE NUGGET. Hatching only on Netflix in 2023.’

The original follows a flock of chickens seeking freedom and desperate to escape their sad fate at the farm.

They were being raised for the slaughter by owners Mr and Mrs. Tweedy, who wanted nothing more than to turn them all into tasty chicken pies.

However, strategic Ginger and rooster Rocky hatched an escape plan to save their friends.

As if all that wasn’t exciting enough, there’s some more cracking news, as Netflix is also teaming up with Aardman for a new Wallace & Gromit movie from creator Nick Park.

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget hits Netflix in 2023.
