    Re: Chicken Little hits the Emporium shelves today

    why do you guys act like this is so bad. This is what Disney does with any of their films, including the Disney/Pixar films, and its what they did with the films back in the early 90's.
    why is it any different with this film?

    Because it seems that CL stuff is EVERYWHERE!!! And I mean EVERYWHERE!!!

    I don't remember big promotions for Mulan, Tarzan, or Hunchback. Hercules had a tolerable promotion though.

    And atleast Hercules wasn't DANCING in his commercials!

    Yes, Mulan, Tarzan, and Hunchback all had their big promotions, and an early push. Hercules was too, and well done.

    this is what disney does. and they have always been doing it.

    and the dancing- obviously it bothers you.
    You seem to flat out judge a movie and damn it to failure before you have even seen it.

    I'm also a bit surprised that people are noticing this promotion more. Disney is a marketing machine - there's usually a huge push for all their films. If there isn't one, there's a reason. ("Valiant" doesn't seem to have had much behind it.) No one remembers everything that was done for "The Incredibles" and "Brother Bear" and a bunch of other films? I think it's just convenient amnesia.

    I bought a Chicken Little plush at the Disney Store a few weeks ago. I'm looking forward to seeing what the antenna topper looks like.

    My main beef with the Chicken Little promotion mania is that the characters creep me right out. I mean good heavens, what sort of evil spawned Abby Mallard?

    They need a "we can do digital as good as pixar" hit for wall street, this is the same kind of hype you saw for dick tracy or down and out in beverly hills. if this film is a bust, then pixar has the negotiation advantage.

    Those films all featured human characters. C.L.'s animal characters lend themselves best to merchandising as opposed to other promotional avenues.
    It would be more than nice to see the film do quite well, as that would bode quite well for the future of Walt Disney Pictures Animation and beyond.

    Thought I'd add a few bits of the recent TIME magazine article here:
    "Disney surely has a winner in its debut effort, Mark Dindal's Chicken Little, which opens Nov. 4. It's one of the funniest, most charming and most exhilarating movies in years. And it's a genuine Disney cartoon, with a storytelling sense and graphic precision worthy of the old animation masters."
    "The title character (voiced by Zach Braff) has huge glasses and a studious mien. And, oh, is this chick adorable, whether trying to win a chaotic baseball game or shaking a tail feather in his soon-to-be-copied chicken dance. It's up to him and his outcast pals to persuade the local skeptics that, darn it, the sky really is falling. At a pace as sprightly and assured as the great old Warner Bros. cartoons, the movie flirts with alien abductions, crop circles, Streisand jokes and familial reconciliation. The animation is gorgeous, but it's the feeling that you'll take home--warm, smart and happy."
