Scrat From Ice Age Gets To Eat The Acorn As Shuttered Studio Blue Sky Says Goodbye To The Franchise:
On Disney+ Hotstar, you can watch more of him in Ice Age: Scrat Tales.
In April 2021, Disney Announced The Closure Of Blue Sky Studios:
Blue Sky was shuttered last April, less than two years after being acquired by Disney as part of its acquisition of 21st Century Fox. Disney cited the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the reason for the closure. Ice Age: Scrat Tales is Blue Sky’s final installment in the Ice Age mythology:
Scrat, the hapless saber-toothed squirrel, and his charming, naughty Baby Scrat battle for the Acorn in a series of six shorts.
Blue Sky has released a (potentially non-canonical) video on YouTube of Scrat finally eating the Acorn he’s been seeking for a long time. Yes, it really did happen.
Despite Their Absence, The Ice Age Series Will Be Continued By Disney:
“During the dying days of Blue Sky Studios, a small group of artists gathered to complete one final shot.
“This shot is a farewell, a send-off on our own terms,” the animation film studio from Connecticut, US, wrote in the description of an unlisted YouTube video titled “The End.”
Scrat Appears In The Backdrop Of The Video, Sniffing The Screen For The Acorn.
The squirrel leaps towards it in the foreground snatches it, touches it affectionately, and then lifts it over his head as if it were a great trophy. Scrat then does something he’s never done before: he looks around.
He bites down on the Acorn with all of his saber teeth, looks up briefly to see if anyone is looking at him, and then continues to eat the rest of the Acorn.
BLUE SKY, LIKE PIXAR, APPEARS TO BE UNSATISFIED WITH DISNEY:
“The End” is barely 34 seconds long and lacks the polish of more recent creations, most likely because Blue Sky animators worked on it in their spare time.
The two-line description, which includes the words “a send-off on our own terms,” feels like a dig at Disney, which will not likely wring every last drop of profit out of the franchise despite laying off the people who were at the center of it all.
Disney is now in the news for its errors with Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” statute, but it has also been chastised internally for its business practices.
Employees at Pixar have expressed dissatisfaction with how their latest films, such as Soul, Luca, and Turning Red, have bypassed theatres and were relegated to Disney+.
While Blue Sky may be saying goodbye to Ice Age, fans do not have to.
Tune in to Ice Age: Scrat Tales – on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar wherever available — to witness more of the undamaged Acorn and Acorn-chasing Scrat.
The six shorts feature Baby Scrat first seeing the Acorn (“Nuts About You”), Scrat attempting to get Baby Scrat to sleep (“LoFi Scrat Beats to Sleep/Chill to”), Scrat teaching Baby Scrat how to plan the Acorn (“X’s and Uh- O’s”), Scrat and Baby Scrat chasing after the Acorn in a dark cave that looks like a creepy funhouse hall of mirrors (“Nutty Reflections”), the duo
The complete Ice Age franchise is now available for streaming on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar, including Ice Age, Ice Age: The Meltdown, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Ice Age: Ice Age: Collision Course, Continental Drift, and the spin-off film The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild.
