Chicken Little

Chicken Little ★★½ 2005 (G)

Disney's first solo (without Pixar) foray into CG animation won't please everyone, but the intended audience of grade-schoolers probably won't notice. Chicken Little (Braff) causes a panic and big trouble for himself when he thinks the sky is falling and sounds the alarm. He spends most of his time trying to live the incident down and build a good relationship with his pop (Marshall) a former athletic hero. When a piece of the “sky” falls on him again, it's up to him and his pals to convince everyone that it really happened, especially when an alien kid gets stranded in town, almost prompting an invasion. Lacks the originality, verve, and adult-pleasing inside humor of the Pixar collaborations, but not a bad first try. 82m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . USD: Mark Dindal; W: Steve Bencich, Ron J.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
