It’s hard to believe that the stop-motion animated feature Chicken Run from the creators of Wallace and Grommit came out nearly 20 years ago in the year 2000. Now, after their recent release of Wallace The Sheep: Farmageddon, Aardman Animations is officially moving forward with a sequel to the film.

Here’s what Aardman co-director Will Beecher had to say about the film in a recent interview.

 “Well all I can tell you is that there were a lot of chickens being made towards the end of our film. We have a model-making team and, at one point, it was just full of sheep, but slowly over the course of the following weeks it became overrun with chickens. So there is definitely an intention there and it was announced they are in pre-production on a sequel.”

“It’s the first film I ever worked on at Aardman. It has affected so many people. Just talking to journalists around the world, everyone is very excited by the prospect of a follow-up. Watch this space. That’s all I’ll say.”
