Miranda Richardson is reprising her voice role of Mrs Tweedy, alongside her fellow OG co-stars Jane Horrocks (Babs), Lynn Ferguson (Mac) and Imelda Staunton (Bunty).

“They say a movie is only as good as its villain and Ginger’s nemesis, Mrs. Tweedy is one of the all-time greats. Now she’s out to take industrial-scale revenge on all chicken-kind with the Dawn of the Nugget,” director Sam Fell shared in a statement. “We’ve had so much fun working with Miranda Richardson to transform Melisha Tweedy into the ultimate 1960’s super-villain. Miranda has a unique understanding of drama and comedy, making you laugh while scaring the pants off you in the exact same moment.”

Also newly announced as joining the cast is Peter Serafinowicz as the voice of Reginald Smith, a “humourless businessman and along with Tweedy poses a new and bigger threat to chicken-kind.”

“Also rounding out our fantastic cast is Peter Serafinowicz playing Reginald Smith, a slightly bemused businessman visiting Mrs Tweedy’s giant nugget factory,” the director said. “It takes a particular kind of comic genius to play the foil to Miranda Richardson’s hilariously frightening archvillain. Peter pulls it off with effortless finesse.”

Here’s a synopsis for the upcoming sequel: Having pulled off a death-defying escape from Tweedy’s farm, Ginger has finally found her dream – a peaceful island sanctuary for the whole flock, far from the dangers of the human world. When she and Rocky hatch a little girl called Molly, Ginger’s happy ending seems complete. But back on the mainland the whole of chicken-kind faces a new and terrible threat. For Ginger and her team, even if it means putting their own hard-won freedom at risk – this time, they’re breaking in!

The stop-motion animated film also stars Thandiwe Newton as Ginger, Zachary Levi as Rocky, Bella Ramsey as Molly, David Bradley as Fowler, Romesh Ranganathan as Nick, Daniel Mays as Fetcher, Josie Sedgwick-Davies as Frizzle and Nick Mohammed as Dr. Fry.

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget premieres December 15th on Netflix!
