Otra Película de Huevos y un Pollo (Spanish for Another Movie of Eggs and a Chicken) is a Mexican animated adventure comedy film produced by a Mexican animation studio Huevocartoon Producciones, and a sequel to Una Película de Huevos.

The film was released in Mexico on 20 March 2009, which was a major commercial success, grossing a total of $113.9 million pesos (USD $6.1 million).[2]

Along with its predecessor, this film was released direct-to-video as a "2-Pack" in the United States.

Plot[edit]

The film begins in a ghost town inhabited by a stone amulet shaped egg who is a great sorcerer. One day, the egg-Wizard prepares to make a spell that has so long been waiting. Passing the list of ingredients, he learns that one is missing: a chicken heart.

In the "Granjas: El Pollon" Toto, a beautiful chicken, learns to eat a worm. He also reflects on his former life as an egg. Soon after, he is kidnapped by buzzard eggs, leading to the desert.

The next morning, Willy, Bibi, Confi, Coco and other friends manage to get to the desert in a supply truck that has been stolen from its owner. In this ghost town, Toto meets face to face with the egg-Wizard, who begins to make his recipe as expected, and, on reaching the ingredient chicken heart, the chicken would have to be sacrificed first. But Toto escapes and goes into the vast desert, where he loses consciousness. The Egg-Wizard calls an army of scorpion eggs to bring back Toto.

In return, Toto's friends know the Roe Boat and manage to find Toto, who has recovered from his faint and then about to be attacked by the scorpion eggs. The gang manages to save Toto, but at one point, Willy is stung by a scorpion egg and later it is discovered that the shell is rotting. The boat Roe proposes that go with Old Egg Hawk, to which Bacon and Toto access immediately.

That night, the Egg-Wizard is informed of these events and forms a new army, which before were empty shells. Meanwhile, Toto and Bacon help dig out the scorpion eggs that have been frozen in the cold of the night. They consult with the Old Hawk Egg, but they themselves are the answer: to use medicinal plants to fix the shell of Willy.

At dawn, it is reported that the egg-Wizard needs the heart before sunset, otherwise it will be forced to appear in person. All eggs choose to fight. In the sunset, the battle starts with a large army of egg-Zombies-which were defeated by the scorpion eggs in thanks of Toto and Tocino freeing them from ice-and then bred with Egg-Wizard-mounted two-brand toy cars " Matchbox " and an iguana. But all are defeated. Then Coco and Bacon derail the toy cars, sending the buzzard eggs to stay with the huevitas underground, making a reference to semi-abandoned women. Finally, it is revealed that the iguana was and is the mother of Iguano.

The eggs come to the climax where the egg-Witch fight face to face with Toto, revealing that the chicken heart wants to "feel and love". He loses his magic and is defeated and is sent to the sky in the last minute by Willy, who has been cured of his wound and it is "lighter" than before from the plants in his shell. The story ends with Toto, returning to his farm and his mother and having a big party with all his friends.

Release[edit]

The film was released in Mexico on 20 March 2009. While the film, along with its predecessor, was released on DVD in the United States as a "2-Pack", neither film were released in any major format in the country due to their "racist" and "controversial" nature, which has stopped the films from making it to the U.S. billboard for failing to match the industry's humor code.[3]

Sequel[edit]

A third film, called Un gallo con muchos huevos (Spanish for A Rooster With Many Eggs') was released on 20 August 2015 in Mexico, and the United States on 4 September 2015.[4]

A fourth and fifth installments are currently in development and will be released in 2019 and 2022 respectively.[5]
