Chicken Little is a 2005 American 3D computer-animated science fiction comedy film, produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and loosely based on the original fable of the same name. As the 46th Disney animated feature film, it was directed by Mark Dindal from a screenplay by Steve Bencich, Ron J. Friedman, and Ron Anderson, based on a story by Mark Kennedy and Dindal. The film is dedicated to Disney artist and writer Joe Grant, who died before the film's release.
Chicken Little made his debut in the 2004 parade, which was in order to promote the release of the Walt Disney Animation Studio's newest film of the same name, which was scheduled to be released the following June. However, just after the 2004 Parade, the release of the film was pushed foreword, with it releasing in December 2005. Because of this, Chicken Little made another appearance in the 2005 Parade, when he was ultimately retired. It is unlikely he will ever return, due to the box office failure of the film. Despite this, he still survives in the Parade Studio today.
- At Balloonfest 2004, and the 2004 Parade, Chicken Little had bent glasses due to there not being a frame on the inside of them, which was fixed the next year.
