It is twenty-thousand years ago. The Earth is a wondrous, prehistoric world filled with danger, not the least of which is the beginning of the Ice Age. To avoid a really bad frostbite, the planet’s majestic creatures – and a few small, slothful ones – begin migrating south. The exceptions are a woolly mammoth named Manfred, a high plains drifter who does things his own way; and a terminally lazy sloth named Sid, who enjoys doing nothing, his own way. When Sid “adopts” Manfred as his protector, the mammoth tries everything he can to unload his newfound baggage. But that’s only the beginning of his frustrations. Manny has been roped by Sid into helping reunite an abandoned human baby named Roshan with his family. They are joined by Diego, a sinister sabre-toothed tiger who befriends Sid and Manny, all the while seeing the infant as a tasty treat. As Sid, Manny and Diego make their way across the vast, ice-covered landscape, another creature, a prehistoric squirrel/rat known as Scrat, tries desperately to carry out his mission in life – to bury an acorn – which, alas, triggers calamitous events. Welcome to the prehistoric world of Ice Age, a smart, character-based comedy and all-digital animated feature film from Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Academy Award®-winning director Chris Wedge. Wedge won the Oscar® for directing the animated short Bunny, whose realistic lighting effects gave the film the unique look and an organic realism feel. Ice Age brings Wedge's animation to the next level and delights audiences with the hilarious character voices of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary and Jack Black.
