Stop whatever you’re doing: Netflix is releasing a sequel to Chicken Run

It could be with us next year

Few films hold the status of “absolute British classic” like Chicken Run, so you’ll be absolutely eggstatic to hear that Netflix is making a sequel!

That’s right, in collaboration with Aardman (the studio behind Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep), production is expected to begin next year, and we are VERY eggcited.

As you’ll remember, the film ends when Mrs Tweedy is crushed into the pie machine as the birds fly to an island where they can enjoy their freedom – perhaps the sequel will be based around their new life? Maybe we’ll be treated to a whole new cast?!

It’s not clear yet whether we’ll be reacquainted with the same chicken chums from the original film but we’ll be sure to update you whenever we hear anything.
