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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Animation fans will find this worth the wait, though apparently there's no story-generating software that can tap into the dark recesses of a child's psyche as cannily as Uncle Walt once did."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"By the time the sky really does start 'falling' -- courtesy of an alien invasion -- Chicken Little's frantic efforts to stay farm fresh have started to wear on the nerves."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Village Voice
"By a comfortable margin the worst feature to come out of the Disney Studios since they invented the American feature-length cartoon in 1937."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Tasteful vocal performances, by a talented cast including Zach Braff, Garry Marshall and Steve Zahn, can't relieve Disney's first inhouse all-computer generated animation movie from its music video trappings and inadequate storyline."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"A friendly, if decidedly featherweight, feature."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"Only a singularly subversive sidekick, a Streisand-obsessed porker (Zahn), makes this movie stand out from a host of other mediocre animated kids' flicks."
‑ David Fear, Time Out
"I don't care if it's 2-D, 3-D, CGI or hand drawn, it all goes back to the story."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Heavy with the sweat of a studio straining to snatch the kids back by throwing digi-crayons, potty jokes, and disco tunes at the lens"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Easy, quick and utterly forgettable."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"It lacks a good, old-fashioned story -- the fourth dimension every 3-D feature needs to be a classic."
‑ Carolyn Arends, Christianity Today
"Traditional cel animation may be dead, but it'll be remembered fondly. Pop ephemera like Chicken Little is more likely to be smiled at once, then instantly forgotten."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"This film's procession of dumb clucks and yuks manages to bring the roof down on occasion, if only through sheer manic exertion."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"A bland byproduct of too many cooks in the kitchen, with not enough ideas on how to bring their different sub-plots together into a cohesive entertaining film for kids."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"the cinematic equivalent of a battery-farmed egg: not exactly rotten, but surrounded by dozens of others just like it in appearance, shape and taste."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Post-Pixar Disney's "Digital 3-D" concept doesn't seem to include any reservations about 2-D character development."
‑ Jonathan Kiefer, Sacramento News & Review
