Get ready to mark your calendars because the much-anticipated “Chicken Run 2” is ready to make its grand debut on Netflix on Friday, December 15, 2023. But that’s not all! Before hitting Netflix, it’s making a special pit stop in UK cinemas as part of the BFI London Film Festival.
The journey to “Chicken Run 2” has been quite the feathered adventure. The sequel came out on April 26, 2018, per Collider. However, it wasn’t until the twentieth anniversary of the original film’s release in UK cinemas on June 30, 2020, that the fantastic folks at Netflix swooped in and secured the rights to this egg-citing sequel.
Lights, camera, action! Filming for “Chicken Run 2” kicked off in early 2021. You might wonder why this stop-motion masterpiece has taken so long to hatch.

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 hard-won freedom at risk – this time, they’re breaking in!”
