WATCH: Ice Age’s Scrat finally gets the acorn in final animated short from Blue Sky Studios team

April 17th, 2022 by Marc Comments

When Disney took over 20th Century Fox, one of the casualties with Blue Sky Studios, the guys who animated the Ice Age movies and, as a final hurrah, the animators have given fans a surprisingly emotional farewell.

Fans of the Ice Age franchise will know that a thread running through the story was that of Scrat, the saber-toothed squirrel and his all-consuming quest to get an acorn that, frustratingly, he never… quite… got… his… little… paws… on.

Until now.

Yes, the animators, as a final farewell, have finally allowed Scrat to get the acorn and, as I said, it’s a surprisingly emotional goodbye.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
