Netflix has shared the official trailer and poster for Aardman’s Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, debuting on the streaming service December 15, 2023.
From the multi Academy and BAFTA award-winning Aardman (Creature Comforts, Wallace & Gromit, and Shaun the Sheep), and Academy Award and BAFTA-nominated director Sam Fell (ParaNorman and Flushed Away, respectively), comes Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, the sequel to the beloved and highest-grossing stop-motion animated film of all time, Chicken Run.
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!
Also on board are Romesh Ranganathan (Nick), Daniel Mays (Fetcher), Josie Sedgwick-Davies (Frizzle), Peter Serafinowicz (Reginald Smith), Nick Mohammed (Dr. Fry), and Miranda Richardson (Mrs. Tweedy).
Fell directed from a screenplay by Karey Kirkpatrick & John O’Farrell and Rachel Tunnard. The producers are Steve Pegram and Leyla Hobart.
Peter Lord, Nick Park, Carla Shelley, Sam Fell, Paul Kewley, and Karey Kirkpatrick serve as executive producers. The music is by Harry Gregson-Williams and editing by Stephen Perkins.
