Opening up about teaming up with Netflix, Aardman’s Peter Lord said: “We’ve discussed it so many times over the years and come up with various ideas but never quite found one we loved enough.
“But it was always in the back of our minds.
“We’ve got the perfect story, and the relationship with Netflix is kind of perfect as well because they celebrate the filmmaker and are so filmmaker friendly.
“I feel now we can make the Chicken Run sequel we want to, the one we really care about.”
Fans of the hit movie have been freaking out on Twitter, with one writing: “Oh my god I am screaming!”

Another added: “This is the only good thing to happen since the start of 2020.”
The sequel will centre on Ginger who now has an egg/daughter, named Molly, with Rocky.
They have been living in a 'peace island sanctuary' since the end of the last movie, free of humans after escaping Tweedy’s farm.
However, Molly grows tired of the island and wants to leave which causes problems.
Maybe she does want to be a pie?!
