Chicken Run 2 is an upcoming stop motion animated comedy film produced by the British studios Aardman Animations and StudioCanal, in partnership with Netflix. A sequel to 2000's Chicken Run, the film will be directed by Sam Fell, from a screenplay by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell.


Having pulled off a death-defying escape from Tweedy’s farm, Ginger has finally found her dream – a peaceful island sanctuary for the whole flock, far from the dangers of the human world. When she and Rocky hatch a little girl called Molly, Ginger’s happy ending seems complete. But back on the mainland, the whole of chicken-kind faces a new and terrible threat. For Ginger and her team, even if it means putting their own hard-won freedom at risk – this time, they’re breaking in![2]

— Aardman Animations



A sequel to Chicken Run was announced on April 26, 2018.[3][4] Aardman Animations will reunite with StudioCanal for the sequel though unlike the first film, neither DreamWorks Animation nor its current parent company, Universal Pictures, will have any involvement, as DreamWorks had ended their partnership with Aardman in January 2007, after the release of Flushed Away in November 2006.[5]

Sam Fell, co-director of Flushed Away, is attached to direct, with Paul Kewley and Nick Park producing.[6][7] The original Chicken Run writers Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell will return for the sequel, though no story information has been revealed.[8] Aardman co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton will serve as executive producers.[9]


On October 16, 2019, the film officially began pre-production.[10][11][12] On June 23, 2020, Netflix purchased American distribution rights to the film.[13]


On June 23, 2020, it was announced that Mel Gibson will not be reprising his role as Rocky the Rooster from the original film, with his character being recast.[14] On July 10, 2020, Julia Sawalha expressed her indignation when she learned that her role as Ginger will be recast with a younger actress, due to the film's producers believing that her voice sounded "too old".[15] Gibson was recast after Winona Ryder accused him of making an antisemitic remark to her, whilst attending a party in 1995.[16]


Principal photography is expected to commence in 2021.[17]
