What Happened in Chicken Run?
What is making fans excited about Chicken Run 2 is what happened in Chicken Run. The story depicted how chickens think behind the barred cages and how they plot a plan to escape imprisonment and an ultimate fate to end up on the dining table. The most entertaining part of the Chicken Run was those catchy lines by the characters. Ginger that was voiced over by Julia Sawalha leads the fellow chickens to escape by taking training from Rocky which was played by Gibson. The story takes place in a Yorkshire poultry farm known as Tweedy’s farm.
And, all those chickens strive to escape the place before their owner makes a pie out of them. Interestingly, the story is much hilarious. It is a brilliant comedy out of what can be the life of chickens. If you have watched all the best comedy movies of 2017 and looking for an entertaining stuff from that characterized the 90s, then consider watching Chicken Run.
No wonders why the film had garnered massive rating at Rotten Tomatoes along with Golden Globes and BAFTA nominations. We can also anticipate for the story to incorporate some new themes suitable to the requirements of the modern generation.
