Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget
True confession time.... I love the stuff by Aardman. If you're not familiar with the name, they are the creative team behind the Wallace & Gromit series of claymation animations and Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun the Sheep, and movies like the original Chicken Run, Early Man, and Flushed Away.

Chicken Run, if I remember correctly, did not do as well as their subsequent movies but still has a fan base. With a release date of 2000 it will mark a sequel over 20 years in the making. 😲 The main characters of Rocky and Ginger in the original were voiced by Mel Gibson and Julia Sawalha while in the sequel they'll be voiced by Zachary Levi and Thandiwe Newton.

This one will be definitely going on the 'To Watch' list. :D
