As you may recall the classic fable, Chicken Little caused widespread panic when he mistook a falling acorn for a piece of the sky. And now, the young chicken is determined to restore his reputation, but just as things are starting to go his way, a real piece of the sky lands on his head! Suspense, chaos and plenty of laughs ensue as Chicken Little and his band of misfit friends, Abby Mallard (aka Ugly Duckling), Runt of the Litter and Fish Out of Water, attempt to save the world without sending the town into a whole new panic. This time, when it comes to saving the world, it helps to be a little chicken.

Chicken Little's loveable characters come to life on screen. The animated film combines Disney's classic storytelling formula with today's advanced technology to deliver a visual spectacular for children and adults.
Based on the classic tale, Chicken Little follows the fable with a few creative freedoms. Chicken Little (voiced by Zach Braff) must clear his name as a chicken who cried “wolf” (or rather “The sky is falling…”). The town turns to chaos over Little's claim. When he can't prove the incident, everyone thinks the chick's lost it. A year later, the stigma still follows him--leading Little to desperately seek acceptance, particularly from his father Buck Cluck (voiced by Garry Marshall). In an effort to seek positive attention, he joins the baseball team and wins the big game. It seems everything's going Little's way until another piece of the sky falls and, mysteriously, finds it's way into Little's home. This time, friends Runt of the Litter (voiced by Steve Zahn) and Abby Mallard (voiced by Joan Cusack) bare witness to the incident, which turns into a full-blown alien invasion. What follows is a battle between animals and the unknown.
As a writer, producer, director, and sometime actor, Marshall can now add “animated character” to his list of accomplishments. Voicing Buck Cluck has to be one of Marshall's easiest roles. With an always distinctive voice, Marshall used his signature sound to carry the role. Braff's familiar voice sounded slightly tweaked for the part but added to the character's sincerity. As always, Cusack and Zahn's characters add the perfect blend of comic relief.
Along with directing The Emperors New Groove, director Mark Dindal also contributed to such classics as The Little Mermaid and Oliver & Company. Given his background, it's no surprise that this film delivers a lot of Disney's essentials--comedy, adventure, and music. In terms of animation, Dindal and his team's attention to detail won't go unnoticed, particularly in the space invasion sequences. Still, while visually gorgeous, Chicken Little won't likely go down in Disney history as a classic. It doesn't have the great soundtrack Disney is usually known for. It features a few originals (Barenaked Ladies' “One Little Slip”), but is jam packed with cover songs (Wannabe, ‘Aint No Mountain High Enough) sung by the actual cast. Pure comedy but no real gems. But overall, Dindal succeeds in delivering a fun film worth taking the family to.
