Netflix Chicken Run 2: The Show Announces a Sequel!
20 year later after the original, Netflix picks up the show and announced the Chicken Run 2.
Chicken Run sequel made a noise two years ago. Now Aardman Animations and Netflix have confirmed that Chicken Run 2 is officially happening. The production will begin the next year, 2021.
Aardman is once again on board to make the movie happen. If the studio is going down the traditional stop-motion claymation route for the follow-up, it’ll likely take a few years to get the chickens up and running.
The original Chicken Run is about a group of chickens on a farm. Their goal is to escape from their impending doom. Suddenly a cocky American Rooster named Rocky crashlands into the farm. Then Ginger, the leader of the chickens, recruits him to teach them to fly. Peter Lord and Nick Park directed the original movie. The sequel will come from Paranorman and Flushed Away director Sam Fell.

Interestingly, we now have a synopsis for the film. The original characters will return for another daring mission. Having pulled off a death-defying escape from Tweedy’s farm, Ginger has finally found her dream. She is in 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 hard-won freedom at risk. This time, they’re breaking in!”
