The underrated stop-motion movie Chicken Run by Aardman has become a bit of a cult favorite in recent years. Even though Chicken Run is a great movie, it is often forgotten in favor of series like Wallace and Gromit. So the second part came as a surprise, but it wasn’t a bad one.
The next movie from the Aardman studio will be Chicken Run 2: Dawn of the Nugget. The movie, which was directed by Sam Fell and written by Karey Kirkpatrick, John O’Farrell, and Rachel Tunnard, has a lot to talk about, so let’s go over everything we know about Chicken Run 2 so far.
When Will Chicken Run 2 Be Released?
Chicken Run 2 will be released on November 10, 2023. That’s correct, chickens! The family film will be released this year. On April 26, 2018, the first mention of Chicken Run 2 was made. Netflix did not publicly disclose that it had obtained the film’s rights until June 30, 2020, the twentieth anniversary of the film’s release in UK theatres.
Because stop-motion animation is exceedingly difficult to master, we have been waiting for years to see the end result since work began in early 2021. Fortunately, the November 2023 delivery date looks to be set in stone at this moment.

Thandiwe Newton will take over as Ginger in lieu of Julia Sawalha. Mel Gibson will also not reprise his role as Rocky, and instead, be replaced by Zachary Levi.
What Could Be the Plot of Chicken Run 2?
In Chicken Run 2, the story will pick up where the first movie left off. Ginger and her new family will face a new threat. Aardman Animations says this about the new movie: “After a daring escape from Tweedy’s farm, Ginger has finally found her dream: a safe island for the whole flock, far from the dangers of the human world.”
Ginger’s happy ending seems to be over when she and Rocky have a girl they call Molly. But back on the mainland, there is a new and terrible threat to all chickens. Ginger and her team are breaking in this time, even if it means risking their own hard-won freedom.
Is There a Trailer for Chicken Run 2?
