Chicken Run 2 Release Date: Is There a Confirmed Premiere Date Yet?
Chicken Run 2 Release Date: The Chicken Run team is very fond of the movie, and when they heard that it was getting a remake, the news sent shockwaves through the office. We weren’t a team back then, so it didn’t happen, but what a day it would have been if we had been.
Basically, it’s a great retelling for kids of one of the best war movies, The Great Escape (we wanted to say “eggcellent,” but we didn’t). People want to know what’s going on around the coop in one of the most exciting new movies of 2023, which is almost ready to come out on Netflix. Here is all the information we have about when Chicken Run 2 will come out.
Chicken Run 2 Release Date
After a short run in UK theaters as part of the BFI London Film Festival, Chicken Run 2 will be available on Netflix on December 15, 2023.
That’s right, chicken people! This year, the follow-up to one of the best family movies ever made will come out. On April 26, 2018, Chicken Run 2 was first talked about. The best streaming service, Netflix, didn’t say it had bought the rights to the movie until June 30, 2020, which is the 20th anniversary of the film’s opening in UK theaters.
Since stop-motion animation takes a long time to get right, we’ve been waiting for years to see the finished result. The December 2023 date seems pretty set, at least for now.
What Happens in Chicken Run 2?
Chicken Run 2 will pick up where the first movie left off. Ginger and her new family, including her daughter, will have to face a new threat involving chicken snacks, led by a businesswoman we’ve seen before.
The movie will start with Ginger’s dream, in which she and her partner, Rocky, and their new daughter, Molly, are all safe on a new island home. But a “new and terrible threat” is out to get them, according to the movie’s official description. Eek!
So, we know that Ginger is now a mother and that she will be sent to the front lines of what sounds like chicken armageddon. The real name of Chicken Run 2 is Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, so we’re going to guess that “The Nugget,” whatever that is, is a big part of the movie. Could it be an individual? Or maybe people’s love of chicken nuggets is putting the birds in danger again.
Who Will Be in Chicken Run 2?
Thandiwe Newton and Zachary Levi will replace the original voice artists for Ginger and Rocky in Chicken Run 2.
Recasting Julia Sawalha as Ginger was criticized by a lot of people, and Sawalha said in a statement, “I have officially been plucked, stuffed, and roasted.” Mel Gibson was also not asked to come back as Rocky. Instead, Zachary Levi will take his place.
Here is the cast list for Chicken Run 2:
- Thandiwe Newton as Ginger
- Zachary Levi as Rocky
- Bella Ramsey as Molly
- Romesh Ranganathan as Nick
- David Bradley as Fowler
- Jane Horrocks as Babs
