The sky is falling! I mean the game is released!

Chicken Little is on a mission to go from "zero to hero," rebounding from the time he inadvertently alerted his entire town that "the sky is falling!" after an acorn fell on his head. Disney’s Chicken Little video games for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube system, Game Boy Advance system and PC are now available at retail outlets across North America, Buena Vista Games Inc. (BVG) announced today. Inspired by the highly anticipated theatrical release from Walt Disney Pictures, Disney’s Chicken Little video games revitalize the classic character with action-packed adventures for the entire family.

“’Chicken Little’ marks one of our largest self-publishing initiatives ever,” said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager, Buena Vista Games. “With both a major theatrical release and video games, ‘Chicken Little’ will provide engaging entertainment for both moviegoers and gamers.”

The game marks the first release from BVG’s recently acquired game development studio, Avalanche Software, based in Salt Lake City.

“Being an internal studio within The Walt Disney Company, we were given access to amazing resources and technology to re-create and expand upon the world of ‘Chicken Little,’” said John Blackburn, vice president, Avalanche Software “The game not only revisits some key events of the film, but extends the experience with unique locations and challenges.”

A free movie ticket for a child’s or adult’s matinee of “Chicken Little” (a value up to $7.25) is packed into both the U.S. and Canadian console video games at participating retail outlets. The offer is on specially marked packages and is available while supplies last and expires on December 31, 2005.
