Long awaited Aardman sequel Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, arrives on Netflix in December, here’s the trailer.

Aardman is responsible for some of the most delightful animation ever committed to the screen. From the Wallace and Gromit series to the gloriously fun Shaun The Sheep films, Aardman’s attention to detail and ability to cram each frame with jokes is staggering.

Chicken Run: Dawn Of The Nugget, the sequel to the 2000 original, has been in the works for some time. We now have a synopsis, which reads as follows:

For Ginger and the flock, all is at stake when the dangers of the human world come home to roost; they’ll stop at nothing even if it means putting their own hard-won freedom at risk to save chicken-kind. This time, they’re breaking in!

There are some cast changes this time around, with Zachary Levi replacing Mel Gibson as Rocky, Thandiwe Newton replacing Julia Sawahla as Ginger, Romesh Ranganathan replacing Timothy Spall as Nick, Daniel Mays replacing Phil Daniels as Fletcher and David Bradley replacing Benjamin Whitrow as Fowler. Miranda Richardson reprises her role as villain Mrs Tweedy.

New additions to the cast include Bella Ramsey as Ginger and Rocky’s daughter Molly, Jane Horrocks as Babs, Imelda Staunton as Bunty, Lynn Ferguson as Mac, Josie Sedgwick-Davies as Frizzle, Nick Mohammed as Dr Fry and Peter Serafinowicz as Reginald  Smith.

Sam Fell directs from a screenplay by returning writer Karey Kirkpatrick, John O’Farrell and Rachel Tunnard.

Chicken Run: Dawn Of The Nugget will stream on Netflix from the 15th December. The film will have its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on the 14th October, with simultaneous preview screenings at a selection of cinemas around the country. You can find out details here.
