We have some egg-cellent news from the world of Chicken Run: the sequel comes home to roost exclusively on Netflix in 2023! Titled Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, this eagerly anticipated action-adventure brings together an incredible “hen-semble” of stars including Thandiwe Newton (Ginger), Zachary Levi (Rocky) and Bella Ramsey, who voices Rocky and Ginger’s headstrong daughter, Molly, and completes the family trio in this new chapter.
Some familiar voices return, too, including Jane Horrocks (Babs), Imelda Staunton (Bunty) and Lynn Ferguson (Mac), while other new voices to join the Chicken Run brood are Josie Sedgwick-Davies (Frizzle), David Bradley (Fowler), Romesh Ranganathan (Nick), Daniel Mays (Fetcher) and Nick Mohammed (Dr Fry).
Directed by Sam Fell (Flushed Away and the Oscar-nominated ParaNorman) with Nick Park in the role of Executive Producer, the new film sees Ginger and all the chickens living the dream in their peaceful island sanctuary, 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!
The film is currently in production here at Aardman so keep an eye out for more news on this exciting sequel in the run-up to its release!
