THE PLOT CHICKENS…
Netflix has released the official trailer and brand new artwork for CHICKEN RUN: DAWN OF THE NUGGET, the long-awaited sequel to the highest-grossing stop-motion animated film of all time, Chicken Run, which will launch on Netflix globally on 15th December 2023.
From the multi-Academy and BAFTA award-winning Aardman (Creature Comforts, Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep), the film is directed by Academy Award and BAFTA-nominee Sam Fell from a screenplay by Karey Kirkpatrick & John O’Farrell and Rachel Tunnard, based on a story by Kirkpatrick and O’Farrell.
CHICKEN RUN: DAWN OF THE NUGGET features the voices of Thandiwe Newton (Ginger), Zachary Levi (Rocky), Bella Ramsey (Molly), Imelda Staunton (Bunty), Lynn Ferguson (Mac), David Bradley (Fowler), Jane Horrocks (Babs), Romesh Ranganathan (Nick), Daniel Mays (Fetcher), Josie Sedgwick-Davies (Frizzle), Nick Mohammed (Dr Fry), Miranda Richardson (Mrs. Melisha Tweedy) and Peter Serafinowicz (Reginald Smith)
Having pulled off a death-defying escape from Tweedy’s farm, Ginger has finally found her dream – a peaceful island sanctuary for the whole flock, far from the dangers of the human world. When she and Rocky hatch a little girl called Molly, Ginger’s happy ending seems complete. But back on the mainland the whole of chicken-kind faces a new and terrible threat. For Ginger and her team, even if it means putting their own hard-won freedom at risk – this time, they’re breaking in!
