Still shot from the movie: Ice Age.

Ice Age

During the prehistoric ice age, a misfit group consisting of a Mammoth (voiced of Ray Romano), a sloth (John Leguizamo), and a saber-tooth tiger (Denis Leary) begrudgingly work together because they are too warm-hearted not to help a lost human child return to its herd.

In this movie, animals care for a young baby much like Kipling’s classic, The Jungle Book. The animated 1967 Jungle Book and live-action Jungle Book: Mowgli’s Story are two adaptations of the novel. The movie Babe features live animals (talking with the aid of human actors) that band together and use their heads to avoid their own extinction.

The other two movies in this franchise are Ice Age 2: The Meltdown and Ice Age: The Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

Home Video Extra Features

If you just can’t get enough of the Ice Age herd, than you’ll want to chill out with this Super Cool Family Edition. The 2-disc set includes the feature in both wide and full screen presentations, deleted scenes, and commentary for both the movie and the cuts by director Chris Wedge and co-director Carlos Saldanha. There is also an avalanche of bonus extras, including: Extreme Cool View Version of Ice Age (which combines Scrat’s Frozen Fun Facts with behind-the-scenes clips from the filmmakers and natural history experts), specific scene commentary by John Leguizamo as Sid, Behind the Scenes of Ice Age (an HBO special), Gone Nutty - Scrat’s Missing Adventure (the animated short), Bunny (another animated short with introduction by director Chris Wedge), three multi-angle animation progressions, and six production featurettes. Not to leave the gamers out in the cold, the package also offers DVD-ROM games and activities. And to get you warmed up for the sequel, you can catch a sneak peek of the trailer for Ice Age 2: The Meltdown. The audio tracks are available in English (Dolby Digital 5.1), French (Dolby Digital 2.1 Surround) and Spanish (Dolby Digital 2.1 Surround), with subtitles in English and Spanish.
