Chicken Little (2005 Movie)

“Chicken Little” is a computer-animated comedy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures in 2005. The film is loosely based on the fable of “Chicken Little,” where the titular character falsely believes the sky is falling and causes panic in the town.

In the movie, Chicken Little is a young and enthusiastic chicken who becomes a laughingstock in his town after causing a false alarm about the sky falling. Everyone dismisses his claim, and he becomes an outcast. Determined to prove himself, Chicken Little, along with his friends Abby Mallard (the ugly duckling), Runt of the Litter (the small pig), and Fish Out of Water (the goldfish), embarks on a journey to save his reputation and the town from an alien invasion.

The film blends elements of comedy, adventure, and family drama, exploring themes of friendship, self-discovery, and the importance of believing in oneself. It is notable for its modern and comedic take on classic fairy tales and nursery rhymes.

“Chicken Little” was the first film produced entirely in computer-generated imagery (CGI) by Disney Animation, following the success of Pixar’s CGI-animated films. It received a mixed reception from critics but was a commercial success, grossing over $314 million worldwide.

The movie features an ensemble cast of voice actors, including Zach Braff as Chicken Little, Joan Cusack as Abby Mallard, Steve Zahn as Runt of the Litter, and Patrick Stewart as Mr. Woolensworth. The film’s humor, vibrant animation, and heartwarming moments have made it a family favorite over the years.
