We can all appreciate an animated movie that both kids and adults can enjoy together, like Ice Age. Scrat, the saber-tooth squirrel from Ice Age, is back to experience the ups and downs of fatherhood with Baby Scrat in a series of animated shorts heading to Disney+.
Ice Age: Scrat Tales will consist of six shorts starring Scrat (voiced by Chris Wedge) and Baby Scrat (voiced by Kari Wahlgren) as they bond with each other and battle for ownership of the highly treasured Acorn.
Here’s a full list of the shorts:
- “Nuts About You” is directed by Michael Berardini and Donnie Long, with a story by Michael Berardini. In “Nuts About You,” Scrat meets Baby Scrat and experiences the pure joy of being a new parent — until Baby Scrat sees the acorn for the first time.
- “LoFi Scrat Beats to Sleep/Chill to” is directed by Donnie Long and Matt Munn, with a story by Donnie Long. In “LoFi Scrat Beats to Sleep/Chill to,” Scrat pounds out a percussive lullaby to get a crying Baby Scrat to fall asleep.
- “X’s and Uh-O’s” is directed by Donnie Long and Drew Winey, with a story by James Young Jackson and Drew Winey. In “X’s and Uh-O’s,” Scrat demonstrates how to plant the acorn for Baby Scrat, but Scrat is really the one who is taught a lesson.
- “Nutty Reflections” is directed by Donnie Long and Eric Prah, with a story by Galen Tan Chu. In “Nutty Reflections,” Scrat and Baby Scrat run after the acorn into a dark cave that resembles a creepy funhouse hall of mirrors.
- “Teeter Toddler” is directed by Jeff Gabor and Donnie Long, with a story by Galen Tan Chu. In “Teeter Toddler,” thanks to a dodo bird, Scrat and Baby Scrat end up on opposite sides of a log held up by a single branch.
- “Nut The End” is directed by Lisa Allen Keane and Donnie Long, with a story by Michael Thurmeier. In “Nut The End,” the acorn goes flying off a cliff. With it seemingly gone forever, can Scrat and Baby Scrat live in harmony?
Ice Age: Scrat Tales will debut on Disney+ on April 13.
