Now available on DVD + Digital HD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade, featuring the Easter Special that aired on Fox last year. Included with the DVD is an Exclusive Easter Egg Stickers.
Set between the films Ice Age Continental Drift & Ice Age: Collision Course, The Great Egg-Scapade centers on Sid (voiced by John Leguizamo) volunteering himself to babysit several so-to-hatch eggs while their parents get ready for Easter. The ex-pirate bunny Squint (voiced by Seth Green) wants revenge on Manny (voiced by Ray Romano) and his pals, so he kidnaps the eggs after Sid fell asleep. He leaves a ransom note wanting to exchange the eggs for a new pirate ship.
Of course Manny and Diego (voiced by Denis Leary) comes to Sid's aide and volunteers to help him retrieve the eggs with the use of a map that Squint accidentally left behind.
Meanwhile, Crash and Eddie (voiced by Seann William Scott and Josh Peck) are planning on starting the first April Fool's Day joke by pulling a prank on Peaches (voiced by Keke Palmer). And poor little Scrat is once again trying to collect to acorns, but he has a bit of bad luck.
DVD Special Features includes:
- Ice Age: Collision Course Cosmic Scrat-tastrophe
- Ice Age - The Story So Far
- 6 Scrat Shorts
- Lost Footage
Final Thoughts: While the last feature film in the franchise, Ice Age: Collision Course, was a disappointment to critics and some viewers, there are still many fans, young and old, that still enjoy the prehistoric adventures of Manny and his crew. Though the Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade (not including the special features) is only 21 minutes long, it's still a cute mini entry for the series. The basic plot involves, Manny, Diego, and Sid going on the first Easter egg hut. Yes, there are a few silly moments, but the story is very likeable. The computer-animation looks great and is in par to the movies.
Overall, I enjoyed watching the Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade DVD. It's an adorable mini-movie that would make a great Easter gift.
