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 December 7, 2012.

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