After Chicken Little causes widespread panic when he mistakes a falling acorn for a piece of the sky, 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. 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.
'Wow' is the best way to start this review. I was fortunate enough to have screened this at a local multiplex with a new Digital projection system allowing us to wear the free 3D glasses that have Polaroid lenses. This enabled the filmmakers to present an intense, colorful, Hi-Definition world populated by your favorite story book characters such as the Ugly Duckling, Foxy Loxy, Turkey Lurkey and of course Chicken Little. The 3D effects were amazing and helped to keep both parents and a theater full of 5 year olds glued to the screen for the full 77 minutes.
Even if you aren't able to watch this in 3D, the story will keep you entertained throughout the movie. Themes such as being open and talking to your parents about life's obstacles, and commitments to friendship are presented during the film, making this more than just a piece of fluff for the little ones. The concept of unconditional love is strongly portrayed by several different characters and in many different ways. This is family fun at its best!
