A stubborn mammoth called Manny

ice ageIce Age (2002) is a prehistoric tale of three unlikely friends. The adventure begins when Manny, a stubborn mammoth, begrudgingly teams up with Sid, a hapless sloth, to return an abandoned human baby to his family. To make it in time they must trust the tracking skills of Diego, a surly saber-toothed tiger with not clear motives.
The idea, originally planned as a classically animated dramatic family film, finally it was decided to take a risk and make a fully 3D animated comedy. The risk paid off. Ice Age grossed $46.3 million in its opening weekend, breaking the record for a March opening.
