“ICE Age: The Great Egg-Scapade” – WITH AN HOUR OF FUN & FAMILY EXTRAS arriving on digital hd march 21


If you were to ask my youngest daughter what her favorite movie is, she would say any of the Ice Age films. She is a huge fan of Scrat and cracks up each and every time she sees a short film featuring Scrat trying to catch an acorn.  She had no idea that there was a new Easter themed movie releasing recently.  So, I was excited to share it with her and Savannah as we were decorating eggs the other day and getting ready for the Easter bunny's arrival.

Have you heard about the recent release, “ICE AGE: THE GREAT EGG-SCAPADE”, which released on Digital HD back on 3/22?  If not, here is a little background on this all-new holiday movie, that is sure to be a hit with Ice Age fans of all ages...


"Scrat, Manny, Sid, Diego and a few new friends from the blockbuster animated franchise “Ice Age” return for a hilarious, all-new holiday adventure, ICE AGE: THE GREAT EGG-SCAPADE, available on Digital HD March 21, 2016.

In ICE AGE: THE GREAT EGG-SCAPADE, harried mom Ethel (Taraji P. Henson, EMPIRE) entrusts her precious, soon-to-hatch egg to Sid (John Leguizamo). When she recommends him to her neighbors – condor mom (Wendy Williams), Cholly Bear (Gabriel Iglesias) and Gladys Glypto (Lili Estefan) – business booms at his new egg-sitting service. However, dastardly pirate bunny Squint (Seth Green, FAMILY GUY), who is seeking revenge on the ICE AGE gang, steals, camouflages and hides all the eggs. Once again, with Squint’s brother, Clint (Blake Anderson), assisting, Manny (Ray Romano), Diego (Denis Leary) and the rest of the gang come to the rescue and take off on a daring mission that turns into the world’s first Easter egg hunt.

Available on iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, Amazon Video, Sony Playstation Store, Microsoft Movies & TV and MGo, ICE AGE: THE GREAT EGG-SCAPADE includes an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming, all-new animated feature film ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE, premiering in theaters July 22, 2016.

My Thoughts:  

First, let me tell you that Bella is so excited about the upcoming ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE, which will be in theaters this summer.  You you purchase the digital HD of “ICE AGE: THE GREAT EGG-SCAPADE”, you will get a sneak peek at this upcoming Ice Age adventure.

As far as the all-new animated special, my girls and I loved it.  Come on, who doesn't love Scrat, Sid and the others?  My girls were all smiles as they saw the opening credits roll, and they didn't stop smiling until the very end, when they turned to me and asked to watch it again. We have only had the digital HD for a day, but have already watched it three times so far.  And, the girls plan to share with family and friends who come to visit for Easter.  

Even though Bella is a huge fan of Scrat, she also loves silly Sid as he calls him.  She giggled when Sid started to talk about his new job of egg sitter. And, for the duration of the movie she pretended to be Sid and sat on a toy under a pillow, pretending to be babysitting and keeping an egg warm.

If you are a fan of Ice Age and/or holiday themed animated films, then you will definitely want to purchase the digital HD of  “ICE AGE: THE GREAT EGG-SCAPADE” and share with your family this Easter.  I don't want to spoil how the egg hunt goes, but will say this movie will keep you entertained right through the credits at the end.  My girls show no signs of growing bored of this animated adventure, and I know you and yours will love it, too!

Happy Easter!!!
