Chicken Run is my favorite Aardman feature so this announcement both excites and worries me. I can't help but feel a little disappointed that Aardman has hopped on the sequel train with Shaun the Sheep 2 and now Chicken Run 2.

I'm really excited to see how this turns out. If worse comes to worse, you can always pretend the sequel doesn't exist. I'm hoping for the best myself.

I suspect Aardman's decision to start making sequels may be diminishing returns at the box office - in the USA at least. They know the original Chicken Run is popular and highly-regarded and are trying to exploit that. Perhaps if they get back on their feet they will start announcing original projects again.

I just wish The Pirates! had done enough at the box office for it to get a sequel(s). I strangely liked that film (not something I thought I would've enjoyed), and it was disappointing to read that they would've made follow-ups if it had only done a little more.

That is indeed a shame. :( The Pirates! was rollicking good fun.

I wonder what the real Queen Victoria would make of it if she were to watch it. :P

I just went ahead and ordered the original Chicken Run on blu-ray from Amazon Germany. :D Why on earth is this film still not available on blu-ray in its native UK? :brick:

DreamWorks/Universal please note that I would also appreciate the vaults opening up for an HD presentation of Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and Flushed Away.

I too long for a proper 4k release of all the above ;-) Chicken Run is epic and I hold it in high regard! I'm a sucker for Mrs Tweedy:-p Maybe they get to know some Turkeys and ruin Thanksgiving this time

Pity Free Birds did that already. Somehow I cannot see Aardman making a movie involving Thanksgiving, though. It is an exclusively American holiday and Aardman's films are very, very British. :)

In other news: I have since received the Chicken Run blu-ray and watched it. AV quality is fine, though I would have liked grain to be more finely resolved. I suspect they used an older master for it, but it's ok. Detail is decent. No issues to report in the audio department.
