It’s Chicken Impossible.

The creators of Wallace & Gromit bring you an exciting and original story about a group of chickens determined to fly the coop–even if they can’t fly! It’s hardly poultry in motion when Rocky (Mel Gibson) attempts to teach Ginger and her feathered friends to fly…but, with teamwork, determination, and a little bit o’ cluck, the fearless flock plots one last attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom.

Did you know?

  • There was a major push to get the film nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. The failure to get the nomination and the popularity of the film among Academy members led to the inclusion of Best Animated Feature for the next Academy Awards (2002), which was won by the fellow DreamWorks film Shrek (2001).
  • After Rocky leaves, there is another joke at Mel Gibson’s expense. Bunty says, “I don’t even think he was American.” A reference to the common misconception that Gibson is actually Australian. (Although he was born in the U.S. and didn’t move to Australia until he was 12, the belief persists, especially in the UK, that he’s Australian.)
  • According to the pattern of the scarf she is wearing, the Scottish chicken “Mac” (Lynn Ferguson) belongs to clan MacLeod of Lewis, Scotland.
