Title: Chicken Run 2: Thandiwe Newton to Voice Ginger in Upcoming Film, Julia Sawalha Replaced

The highly anticipated sequel to the popular animated film “Chicken Run” will see Thandiwe Newton take on the role of Ginger, the charismatic chicken leader. The news comes as it was revealed that Julia Sawalha, who voiced Ginger in the original film, has been replaced for the upcoming project.

In an exciting development for fans of the original movie, it has been confirmed that Thandiwe Newton will lend her voice to the iconic character of Ginger in “Chicken Run 2.” The British actress, known for her roles in films such as “Crash,” “Mission: Impossible 2,” and the HBO series “Westworld,” is set to bring her talent and depth to the beloved chicken character.

The announcement of Newton’s involvement in the sequel comes alongside the news that Julia Sawalha, who portrayed Ginger in the first film, will not be returning for “Chicken Run 2.” Sawalha took to social media to express her disappointment, stating that she had been informed by the producers that her voice was now “too old” for the role. She further added that she had not been given the opportunity to prove her vocal abilities and was saddened by the decision.

Aardman Animations, the studio behind the original “Chicken Run” and its sequel, responded to Sawalha’s claims, explaining that they needed to recast the role of Ginger due to the passage of time. They stated that as the characters in the film had aged, they wanted to reflect that in the voices of the chickens. However, they expressed their admiration for Sawalha’s performance in the first film and acknowledged her contribution to the success of “Chicken Run.”

“Chicken Run 2” is being directed by Sam Fell, known for his work on animated films such as “Flushed Away” and “ParaNorman.” The original film, released in 2000, was a collaboration between Aardman Animations and DreamWorks Animation. It became the highest-grossing stop-motion animated film of all time at the time of its release, garnering critical acclaim and a loyal fan base.

The sequel is set to continue the story of Ginger and her fellow chickens as they navigate new challenges and adventures. Details about the plot are being kept under wraps, but fans can expect the same humor, heart, and excitement that made the original film a hit.

With Thandiwe Newton taking on the role of Ginger, audiences can anticipate a fresh interpretation of the character, adding a new dynamic to the beloved chicken leader. As production progresses, fans eagerly await further updates on the highly anticipated “Chicken Run 2.”
