Cute, sometimes-frantic movie has peril, potential scares.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Chicken Little features prominent and repeated images of mayhem. Its opening sequence, which shows citizens running around in a panic and screaming, is somewhat frantic; it might be a bit too intense for some sensitive younger viewers. Though much of the action is benign and cartoonish (crowds in a panic, animal children playing aggressive dodgeball or baseball and falling from windows), the film ends with an alien invasion, with giant tripods and creatures inspired by War of the Worlds, and some potentially scary Predator- or Aliens-style music. Chicken Little is bullied by the other kids. One character is readable as gay, as he adores disco and cowers before his mother, and another, a tough, baseball-playing female fox, is transformed into a traditional girl -girl, as a partly jokey reinforcement of traditional gender roles. We hear in a song's lyric "be my lover."
