Right do for this weeks trivia I thought I would pull out an animated movie for you seen as i haven’t done one of those in a while. Ice Age is a fantastic movie and makes me laugh out loud at points.
Movie signage and the book version include a female sloth named Sylvia, who is not seen in the released movie. In the book, Sid manages to avoid accompanying her on the migration south, because she is interested in a commitment.
James Earl Jones and Ving Rhames were originally considered to play Manny.
The first movie produced by Fox Animation since Titan A.E..
The production team originally thought of turning the 20th Century Fox logo into ice when it appears before the film. Even though it can be seen in one of the trailers, they cut that out and placed the regular logo in the film.
The first drawings seen in the cave (before entering the giant area with the mammoth drawings) are replicas of the earliest known cave drawings (found at Lascaux, in the south of France). They have been dated at somewhere between 15,000 and 17,000 years old.
John Leguizamo tried 30 different voices for Sid. After viewing a documentary about sloths, he learned that they store food in their mouths; this led to him wondering what he would sound like with food in his mouth. After attempting to speak as if he had food in his mouth, he decided that it was the perfect voice for Sid.
Pre-production took over a year before any animation occurred.
The drawings of characters during the end credit roll were all done by the children of the animators. The same is true of the picture that Sid draws of himself on a cave wall.
The responsibility for animating Sid’s snowboard sequence was given to animators who went snowboarding in real life.
This was Blue Sky Studios’ first all-CGI feature.
If you haven’t seen these movies, there are four in total but you like a good animated movie than way not give these a try. Well until next tmie. Bye bye.
