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 and a terminally lazy sloth named Sid. 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: Manfred has been roped by Sid into helping reunite an abandoned human baby named Roshan with his family. On their mission they are joined by Diego, a sinister saber-toothed tiger, and Scrat, a prehistoric squirrel/rat with a natural urge to bury acorns. When Scrat tries desperately to carry out his mission in life with an unlucky acorn, he triggers calamitous events. ICE AGE is a smart, character-based comedy and all-digital animated feature film from Academy Award-winning director Chris Wedge.
