Convinced there is a better life outside the coop, the plucky Ginger (voice of Julia Sawalha), attempts to lead her fellow hens out of their chicken-wire confines. However, the birdbrains keep running amuck, until the unexpected arrival of an American circus rooster (Mel Gibson) gives wings to a new escape plan.

Details on home video releases of Chicken Run...

DVD Release Date: 21 November 2000
Like other Dreamworks’ DVD releases (including the award winning Prince of Egypt DVD), this disk is chock full of information about the movie and the people who created it. Two extensive documentaries illustrate the painstaking process required to create the over one-hundred-thousand individual pictures that form Chicken Run. You also learn about the history of Aardman Productions and creators Peter Lord and Nick Park.

Another section of the disk provides a host of detailed biographies on every cast member and many of the crew while pushing a couple more buttons generates a wealth of written production notes.

Finally the disk includes a running commentary with directors Lord and Park talking you through every step of the movie.

Needless to say, the images are superb, the sound amazing, and the movie is even more enjoyable when you can stop and take a good look at those chickens. Not meaning to egg you on, but this is a DVD worth cracking open.
