Chicken Run is about to get a sequel in the form of Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget. No, folks. I am not kidding. That 2000 claymation film by Pathé and Aardman Animations in partnership with DreamWorks Animation will soon have a sequel…23 years after its theatrical debut. Not only that, but this sequel will stream on Netflix to boot. Don’t believe me? Then why not check out Netflix’s new official teaser for this sequel for yourself below, and revel in the chicken-flavored nostalgia?

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget ~ Teaser Details

I’ll bet you that sewing kit is going to come in handy in this break-in somehow.

Netflix has just released a new official teaser trailer for Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget on YouTube. Said teaser shows off some of the plot from returning studios Aardman Animations and Pathé, as well as from new studio StudioCanal. Especially on Aardman Animations’ part, since if you’re a fan of the original Chicken Run as well as the Wallace & Gromit films, then you might recognize their distinct claymation style. As well as their distinct brand of comedy, of course.

The teaser trailer shows Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget to essentially be a heist film, even if it’s technically in reverse. Instead of breaking out of a farm, the chickens must break into some kind of futuristic, high-security facility. A facility with electric fences, robot Terminator moles, and laser-guided kamikaze ducks as part of its security. Why? Well, the teaser doesn’t make that particularly clear. However, we do get a glimpse of someone returning from the original Chicken Run at the end of the teaser: Mrs. Tweedy. Given her chicken pot pie scheme in the original film and the title of this sequel, nuggets will probably be the reason for the break-in…somehow.

Fortunately, we won’t have that long to wait before we see why the chickens are making this break-in. The very end of that teaser reveals that Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget will make its global debut on December 15, 2023. Of course, though, it’s a Netflix exclusive. Thus, you’ll need a paid subscription in order to watch it.
