The Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget trailer hatches

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget follows the protagonists from 2000's Chicken Run in a new stop-motion adventure.

A whopping 23 years after animated hit Chicken Run first graced our cinema screens, we finally have a sequel.

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget is the Netflix-exclusive, Aardman-produced follow up to the highest-grossing stop-motion hit in film history.

The gist of the film is as follows: ‘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!’
