Unlike anything ever seen on the big screen, "Chicken Run" is the year's biggest original comedy, hailed by critics and audiences alike as "magical entertainment for all ages!" (Roger Ebert, Roger Ebert & The Movies) While the chickens on evil Mrs. Tweedy's farm dream of a better life, a clever hen named Ginger is hatching plans to fly the coop- for good! The only problem is, chicken can't fly...or can they? Every escape attempt goes fowl until Rocky, a smooth-talking All-American rooster, crash-lands into the coop. It's hardly poultry in motion when Rocky attempts to teach Ginger and her fine feather friends to fly...but, with teamwork, determination and a little bit o'cluck, the fearless flock plots one last daring attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom! Featuring unforgettable characters, incredible animation, and all-star voice talent, this instant classic from the Academy Award winning creators of Wallace & Gromit is eggs-traordinary fun for the whole family!
