The new Chicken Little is a highly exaggerated version of the
original tale. This exaggeration is the only reason the tale would have
ever made it to the screen.
Before you say anything, I thought the same thing...
What kind of dumb premise can come from a Chicken Little animation?
Now, after seeing the trailer, the film looks to be pretty good. The main
reason for this is that the 'new' Chicken Little story covers a
highly exaggerated version of the original Chicken Little; such
as the invasion of aliens.

The film is due out July 1st so it is getting an early start on the teaser
trailer marketing. Remember, Revenge of the Sith, a highly anticipated
film that will finish the new Star Wars trilogy, hasn't released
its teaser yet and the film is due out in May. Mark Dindal, the director
of Chicken Little, has a pretty good history of animation projects
from Little Mermaid to the Emperor's New Groove. The cast
of Chicken Little is pretty strong, even though no comparison to
some of the latest CGI animations to hit the scene. This cast includes Zach
Braff, Joan Cusack, Amy Sedaris, and Don Knotts among others. Well, since
we still have some time on this film, lets just take a look at the TEASER
