Plucky Chicken is a 2012 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Gingo Animation for Universal Pictures. Directed by Gary Hall and written by Josh Klausner, the film features the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Joan Cusack, Danny McBride, Neil Patrick Harris, Wilmer Valderrama, and Steve Buscemi.

The film was released to theaters in the United States and Canada on July 27, 2012. It received mixed reviews, with primary criticism disliked the film's unexpected similarities with DreamWorks/Aardman's Chicken Run. Despite the mixed reception, however, the film proved to be a box office success, earning more than $426.7 million on a budget of $160 million.

ProductionEdit

In March 2008, Universal Pictures and Gingo Animation announced that they were working on an original animated film entitled Plucky Chicken. Gary Hall, an veteran Gingo animator who also came up with the idea for the film, was announced to make his feature directorial debut. Writer Josh Klausner was hired by Gingo to write the film's screenplay.

On June 7, 2010, it was announced that Ryan Reynolds, Joan Cusack, and Danny McBride joined the cast of the film. In March 2011, it was announced that Steve Buscemi joined the cast of the film.

ReleaseEdit

Plucky Chicken was originally scheduled to be released on July 5, 2011, however, in September 2009, the date was pushed back to July 27, 2012. This happened because Universal Pictures changed the release date of Gabriel Garza, from December 2010 to July 2011, thus pushing Plucky Chicken to 2012.  The film was later released in the United Kingdom on November 16, 2012.

A short animated film starring the characters of the Computeropolis franchise, titled Go Party!, accompanied Plucky Chicken during its theatrical release.

Home mediaEdit

Plucky Chicken was released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 4, 2012. 

ReceptionEdit

Critical responseEdit

The review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a rating of 59%. The consensus states: "Plucky Chicken has some very nice animation and character design that all live up to Gingo's classics, but lacks some originality about the storyline to compete with the likes of Chicken Run." On Metacritic, the film has a score of 51 out of 100, indicating "mixed or average reviews".
