Chuck Chicken the Movie follows Chuck, Flick, and Wing’s new life in the city far from their home in Rocky Perch Island. Chuck begins to start his own ‘Golden Egg Security’ company in the new city but unfortunately the traditional business model does not suit the needs of the modern city. Just when they are getting frustrated, Chuck discovers the “Ultimate Security Combat Competition” which could save their day.

“We are extremely excited to commence the production of Chuck Chicken the Movie with ZeroOne Animation and launch the trailer at HK FILMART 2017. We have also attracted a leading cinema chain and distributor from Malaysia to represent and distribute the movie to key Southeast Asian theatrical markets and we will announce the line-up of our distributors for other key markets soon,” said Edmund Chan, Managing Director of Animasia Studio who is also the Executive Producers of the movie together with Raye Lee and Helen Dong.

About Chuck Chicken

Chuck Chicken takes place on an island called Rocky Perch, a land filled with chaos, mayhem and lots and lots of birds. Welcome to Golden Egg Securities, the number one security service on Rocky Perch. Chuck runs the company with his two friends, Flick and Wing. Chuck also inherited a very special talisman in the shape of a golden egg, an object that bestows amazing powers on whoever possesses it, and turns Chuck into ‘Kung Fu Chicken.’ Unfortunately for Chuck, the talisman does not come with any instructions, so he doesn’t know how to properly control his new abilities.
