The continuation to Chicken Run, which premiered in theaters more than two decades ago, will be called Chicken Run 2.
On June 23, 2000, Chicken Run became the first stop-motion animated comedy picture when it was released. Director Peter Lord and producer Nick Park worked on the film’s script, which was written by Karey Kirkpatrick. When we checked, it had been running for roughly 84 minutes. To put things in perspective, the picture cost about $45 million to make and ended up making over $224.8 million at the box office.
Peter Lord, Nick Park, and David Sproxton served as the show’s producers. At least four studios contributed to the production of Aardman’s feature film, including Aardman and Allied Filmmakers as well as Dreamworks Animation, DreamWorks Pictures, and Pathé Distribution. This stop-motion animated comedy was a hit with critics and moviegoers alike. In comparison, Rotten Tomatoes awarded it a 97 out of 100 rating and a 65 out of 100 rating.

What’s the release date for Chicken Run 2?
Until Chicken Run 2 begins production and an official release date is given, we can only speculate about when it will be available on Netflix.
We don’t anticipate Chicken Run 2 to be finished until the middle of 2022, even if the sequel begins production in 2021. Stop-motion animation is especially time-consuming. Keeping in mind that each frame of the film must be filmed separately, with each plasticine model being modified ever so little between each frame, 24 frames equals one thin second of footage (via National Film Board of Canada). A few seconds of material could be generated in a week if the original film’s animators worked in this manner, but it would have taken them full days to do it. Since Chicken Run ran for little over an hour, it would be unrealistic to expect a year-long development for the sequel.
As for Aardman, it has two decades of added experience since Chicken Run, so it should be able to keep up with Netflix’s speedy turnarounds. It’s presently unclear how much money Netflix is ready to invest on Chicken Run 2, but the more animators Aardman can bring on board, the sooner the sequel will hit our screens.
