Netflix has been stop motion friendly in recent years, and is set to hatch a sequel to 2000's Chicken Run.
On Tuesday, the streaming service celebrated the beloved animated flick's 20-year anniversary by announcing a follow-up feature produced by Aardman Animations. “POULTRY NEWS: Exactly 20 years to the day since the original was released, we can confirm there will be a Chicken Run sequel coming to Netflix!!" read the tweet. "Produced by Aardman, production is expected to begin next year. Eggsellent.”
The sequel — directed by Sam Fell and written by Karey Kirkpatrick, John O’ Farrell and Rachel Tunnard — catches up with Rocky and Ginger living in a human-free sanctuary with their recent hatchling, Molly. Of course, when confronted a new, terrible threat, they leave their peaceful island sanctuary behind to help save all chicken-kind.
