Dawn of the Nugget teaser

Not seen on screens since her plans to turn a farm of animated chickens into pies were thwarted more than two decades ago, Ms. Tweedy – the evil nemesis of Aardman’s 2000 stop-motion classic Chicken coop – has returned for the highly anticipated sequel.

In the teaser trailer of Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget – which will have its world premiere at the London Film Festival before landing on Netflix on December 15 – Tweedy, voiced again by Miranda Richardson, is once again revealed as the supervillain for Ginger (Thandiwe Newton) and her herd, this time as the brains behind a terrifying new culinary invention that threatens their very existence: the chicken nugget.

“Last time we escaped from a hen from a hen farm… well, this time we break in,” says Ginger in the teaser, which provides a loose summary of the plot, which goes beyond the original and sees the newly freed hens Work together to defeat Tweedy’s diabolical nugget factory.

British comic book hero Peter Serafinowicz has also joined the cast, alongside the already announced Zachary Levi (Rocky), Bella Ramsey (Molly), Imelda Staunton (Bunty), Lynn Ferguson (Mac), David Bradley (Fowler), Jane Horrocks ( Babs), Romesh Ranganathan (Nick), Daniel Mays (Fetcher), Josie Sedgwick-Davies (Frizzle) and Nick Mohammed (Dr Fry).

From multi-Oscar and BAFTA-winning animation pioneers Aardman (Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the sheep), Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget is directed by Sam Fell (ParaNorman, Washed away).

“They say a movie is only as good as its villain and Ginger’s nemesis, Mrs. Tweedy, is one of the all-time greats. Now she wants to take revenge on all chicken species on an industrial scale with the Dawn of the Nugget,” Fell said.

“We have had so much fun working with Miranda Richardson to transform Melisha Tweedy into the ultimate 1960s supervillain. Miranda has a unique understanding of drama and comedy that will make you laugh and give you the creeps at the exact same time. body hunts. Our fantastic cast is also rounded out by Peter Serafinowicz who plays Reginald Smith, a slightly bewildered businessman visiting Mrs. Tweedy’s gargantuan gold nugget factory. It takes a certain kind of comic genius to play the role of Miranda Richardson’s hilariously terrifying arch-villain. Peter does it with effortless finesse.”
