Scrat, the saber-toothed squirrel from the Ice Age franchise, has finally got to eat his beloved acorn in the video published by a small team of Blue Sky Studios artists as a way of saying farewell to the fans after the studio's closure.
Blue Sky Studios, the Disney-owned animation studio behind the Ice Age movies, got officially shut down a year ago. Although recently the studio decided to say the proper farewell. On Wednesday, a video called "The End" appeared on the YouTube channel titled Finale. This is the only video on the channel. Comments are closed, and the video itself is only available via the link.
"In the final days of Blue Sky Studios, a small team of artists came together to do one final shot. This shot is a farewell, a send-off on our own terms," reads the description of the video.
The 30-second animation follows the final "adventure" of Scrat, the saber-toothed squirrel from the Ice Age film franchise, where he has finally got to eat his acorn. In his usual manner, the squirrel jumps to the acorn, but this time without incident – the character grabs the nut, eats it, and then leaves the frame.
The short video is quite memorable as the audience saw Scrat for the first time 20 years ago when the little prehistoric creature opened the first scene in the movie introducing us to the frozen Ice Age world. He then followed a lot of hazardous and unlucky journeys trying to hide his beloved acorn and appeared throughout all of the Ice Age series.
The news of the Blue Sky shutdown was revealed back in February 2021. Currently, the Ice Age franchise being developed by Disney. Scrat himself also reappeared in Ice Age: Scrat Tales, the series of shorts that recently debuted on Disney+. The series was developed by the Blue Sky Studio Ice Age team before its closure.
