Scrat, Manny, Sid, Diego and a few new friends from Blue Sky’s blockbuster Ice Age franchise are putting a prehistoric spin on Easter traditions in the new animated holiday special Ice Age: The Great Egg-scapade, which premieres Sunday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on FOX. During the broadcast, 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky will also reveal an exclusive sneak peek at upcoming feature Ice Age: Collision Course (July 22).
In The Great Egg-scapade, harried prehistoric bird mom Ethel (Taraji P. Henson) entrusts her precious, soon-to-hatch egg to Sid (John Leguizamo). When she recommends him to her neighbors – a 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), who is seeking revenge on the Ice Age gang, steals, camouflages and hides all the eggs. Once again, with Squint’s twin 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.
The special arrives on Digital HD the day after its broadcast premiere. Directed by Ricardo Curtis, The Great Egg-scapade is produced by John C. Donkin with executive producers Lori Forte, Chris Wedge and Carlos Saldanha.
