Disney's first venture into the realm of CGI animation (without Pixar) tells the tale of all-animal town Oakey Oaks's most infamous resident, Chicken Little (voiced by Zach Braff), who causes town-wide panic when he claims the sky is falling. A year later he's still shunned by everyone, including his dad (Gary Marshall), a single rooster with an incredibly wide tie. Determined to end his losing streak, the bespectacled Little joins the baseball team, even though he can barely lift the bat. Luckily his three equally outcast friends have faith in him: a pig with a yen for '70s disco (Steve Zahn); a Harpo Marx-esque goldfish in a diving helmet; and Abby, a buck-toothed female duckling (Joan Cusak). According to her sources in magazines such as Modern Mallard, Abby is sure Chicken Little merely needs "closure" with dad over the sky incident. But when the sky really does start falling due to a full-on alien invasion, and only Chicken Little knows why, dad still doesn't want to believe him.
Kids are sure to understand Chick's frustration in this matter, and parents will dig the sly riffs on films like VERTIGO (1958), THE BLOB (1959), INDEPENDENCE DAY (1996), and WAR OF THE WORLDS (1953), as well as Disney's own back catalog. In place of the usual musical numbers, CHICKEN LITTLE includes montages set to Barenaked Ladies songs and reinterpreted pop favorites (the old Art Garfunkel gut-wrencher, "All I Know," is a standout), while celebrity voiceovers come from Harry Shearer, Wallace Shawn, Patrick Stewart, Adam West, and Don Knotts, with Amy Sedaris as the obnoxious "Foxy Loxy."
This movie is loved by my children (ages 7, 6 and 3). My daughter even wrote a "part 2" in her journal for school. My three year old loves the different sayings of Buck Cluck. And my daughters like singing the "One Little Slip" song.

I bought this dvd cause my lil boys love the movie. We used to rent it back and forth, back and forth, from an online dvd rental place. After so long, I then realized that I should have just bought it. This dvd will be one of the gifts that "Santa" brings them for Christmas. It is an 'old' movie but I am pretty sure my boys will still be very happy to know they now own the dvd. p.s. I had searched in EVERY local department store where I live and neither one of them carried this movie anymore. They all said it's an older Disney movie that they didn't even carry it anymore. I could only find it online and Overstock was the cheapest. Thanks Overstock.Com! :)

Product arrived fine, however the shipping was slow. The DVD arrived on the last estimated shipping day. If you need it sooner than what's estimated, you may want to expedite the order if you have the option...
