The Disney CGI animated movie Chicken Little will shortly be released in the UK. It was released last year in the States, was dismissed by the critics, and didn't do much business at the box office.

I mention it here because the movie's plot has the title character discovering that aliens are invading. Unfortunately, nobody believes him, due to the "sky is falling" scare that he'd previously sparked off.
The movie's climax apparently has alien tripods stomping all over the landscape.

Cheers 'uber Fenris' I'll have to keep an eye out for that, watch the sky's so to speak :lol:
I'd not even heard Disney had made it as a film, you would have thought if it had tripods in it we would have heard something :?

"Chicken Little" bombs big time
Children's movie alters classic story to alienable extremes

Devon Madison, Online Staff Writer
11/8/2005

An animated fat pig sings Barbara Streisand, "The War of the Worlds" is spoofed and aliens are brought into an age-old fairy tale. What more could moviegoers want? Oh, that's right, their money back.

"Chicken Little," directed by Mark Dindal, is a spin-off of the old fairy tale where Chicken Little (voiced by Zach Braff) thinks the sky is falling when an acorn falls on his head. He hurries to tell the king but runs into his friends along the way, who all believe his story. On their way to the palace, they run into a fox who tricks the animals into his den and eats them. The moral of the story is supposed to be that one shouldn't believe everything one hears; however, the movie actually proves otherwise.

In the movie, Chicken Little thinks the sky is falling and rings the alarm to alert the town. When all the townspeople come and find only an acorn, they all believe Chicken Little was mistaken. Chicken Little decides to fix his reputation by making a game-winning play in an important baseball game, but soon ruins it again when another piece of sky falls on him. This time his friends are around, and one is abducted by the aliens who have hidden in the piece of sky. Chicken Little now must convince the townspeople to believe that it's aliens who really are invading so that he can save his friend.

The film strays too far from the original tale and adds plot fodder that makes the whole movie seem too far-fetched. The movie somehow turns into a scene from "War of the Worlds," the classic film in which aliens attack the world.

Cheers 'eveofthewar' it sounds more like the old tale of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' than 'Chicken Little'.
