It’s been 20 years since the original was released, with the love for Chicken Run still continuing. And now we have exciting news, as it’s been announced a sequel is coming. Even better, it’s coming to our favorite streaming service! 2020 is looking up people!
Fans of the animated movie are thrilled to see Chicken Run revived after the film was released in 2000. This is amazing news for the team who worked on the original – a streaming giant like Netflix must have seen the potential, as production starts next year. What will the gang be up to this time?!
What will happen in the second movie?!
Netflix has announced that Ginger, Rocky, and Molly will be back to help other chickens win their freedom. After their last successful mission which led them close to death, Ginger has now found a peaceful island ‘far from the dangers of the human world’. Ginger and the team must help the threat chickens are facing back on the mainland, with Netflix suggesting that ‘this time, they’re breaking in’. Our nostalgia is already kicking in!
Director Sam Fell demonstrated that the sequel was already in development back in 2018. As Netflix has now picked it up, it’s full steam ahead, especially as Chicken Run remains the highest-grossing stop motion animated film in all of history! Peter Lord, Aardman Co-Founder said that fans have waited patiently for another installment, as he was ‘delighted to announce, on the 20th anniversary, that we’ve found the perfect story’. Amazing.
We don’t have too long to wait…
Fans will also be relieved that Netflix wants to keep the format the same as it was 20 years ago. Lord indicates how Netflix wanted to celebrate the filmmaker with a global audience, therefore the project will be untouched. We can’t believe its been 20 years since the original, and this news couldn’t have come at a better time. Chicken Run 2 will be the feelgood movie we all need!
This is what the future holds if we carry on binging Netflix! Oh no!
