Disney has announced that the smash-hit animated film, “Chicken Run”, is going to be coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Friday 15th July 2022.

Trapped behind barbed wire, Ginger, Bunty and Fowler are chickens with a mission. They are determined to make a break for freedom but every escape goes “fowl” when they are caught by the evil Mrs. Tweedy who wants to turn them into pies. When an all-American rooster lands in the farm, Ginger sees her chance and together they prove that chicken are anything but, as they engage in a daring escape.

“Chicken Run” is directed by Nick Park and Peter Lord. It stars Mel Gibson, Phil Daniels, and Julia Sawalha.

This film is being added as part of a larger offering of British-made films that are being added to Disney+ in the UK and Ireland to help fulfil a quota, which requires at least 30% of the content offered within a streaming service, be made within Europe. It also helps boost interest from British and Irish viewers, who want to watch films and shows that they can relate to easier.
