Chicken Little Animated film problems

I have heard about this new animation supposedly a sequel to the the chicken little (licken) childrens story and made by disney.

the problem (which I think is quite a major problem) is chicken little was eaten by foxy loxy at the end of the book I read along with turkey lurkey, ducky lucky(not very) gander lander et al.

I hate it when american film makers take liberties with my childhood memories.

Since when have Disney ever let a downer ending stopped them from adapting a story?! Did The Little Mermaid end up as surf on the ocean and for that matter did it hurt like knives when she walked? Did Beauty's (completely excised by Disney!) sisters end up as stone statues? etc etc!

But my point is that a sequal wouldnt be possible, which this version seems to be, as at the end of chicken little they were all dead. Unless chicken little comes out of a shower at the beginning and it was all a dream.

Erm ... I suggest you re-read the book.

Chicken Licken survived - only his friends were eaten by foxy loxy.

Don't think it's a sequel.

From what i've seen of it, it has very little to do with the nursery rhyme any way. The fox is now an ailen invasion!

So a literal translation then?

Fox - Aliens...easy to mix them up

Yeah, made $30+ million. Dispite bad reviews. (The same weekend last year The Incredibles took $70m.)

Thought this was absolutely dreadful and failed as a children's movie. Everything was far too exagerated that I started to feel sick. Managed to laugh at one or two references but that's about it. What a tragic waste of an afternoon.
