Disneys first venture into the realm of CGI animation (without Pixar) tells the tale of all-animal town Oakey Oakss most infamous resident Chicken Little (voiced by Zach Braff) who causes town-wide panic when he claims the sky is falling. A year later hes 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 doesnt want to believe him. Kids are sure to understand Chicks 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 Disneys own back catalogue. In place of the usual musical numbers Chicken Little includes montages set to Barenaked Ladies songs and reinterpreted pop favourites (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.
