A wooly mammoth, a saber-toothed tiger, and a sloth make an unlikely trio of prehistoric travelers in this computer-animated comedy directed by Chris Wedge, an Oscar winner for his 1998 short Bunny. Ray Romano, Denis Leary, and John Leguizamo provide peerless voice work as the protagonists, and the Animated Feature nominee would go on to inspire four big-screen sequels as well as several shorts starring the luckless squirrel Scrat. Ice Age will be preceded by two Oscar-nominated, animated shorts—The Cat Came Back and Animal Behaviour.
