Over the years, Twentieth Century Fox has teamed up with Blue Sky Studios and Dreamworks Animation to bring to life worlds that we could only previously imagine in our dreams. The world of animation given to us by Fox Home Entertainment has brought us into many different environments, including a tropical paradise, a continental meltdown, and a forest full of magical adventures. Throughout this post we will explore the world of animation as we relive some of our favourite classic Blue Sky Studios and Dreamworks Animation flicks.
Ice Age: Continental Drift
The portrayal of the ocean and sky in the newest Ice Age film is so realistic that it becomes hard to remember that we’re not drifting around on an iceberg! Instead, we’re relaxing at home, taking in the scenery.
Each Ice Age adventure with Sid, Manny, and Diego introduces us to a fun landscape. Blue Sky Studios’ attention to detail allows us to feel as if we are actually along for the journey with our furry friends.
Dreamworks Animation gave us a wonderful vision of what life was like for The Croods with computer-animated wild animals and unusual plants.
When the Crood family was forced to leave behind their cave and explore the world outside, we were taken through some fantastic landscapes. The night sky was especially breathtaking!
In 2011, Blue Sky Studios brought us to the beautiful country of Brazil with Rio. Both day and nighttime views of the scenery took our breath away!
From the jungles to the beaches to the bustling city, Rio showed us the many different landscapes of Rio de Janeiro. The vibrant colors of Carnival and the festival made for an exciting film.
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs was the first 3D film for Blue Sky Studios. The enormous dinosaurs in the film gave us a glimpse into another era.
In the third Ice Age film, we were introduced to an entirely new world with a snow-free landscape. The change of scenery did not leave fans disappointed!
From the creators of Ice Age, the year’s funniest, most exhilarating animated adventure comes home as EPIC debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, and DVD this August 20 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by Chris Wedge (The Ice Age Franchise) and featuring an amazing voice cast including Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Pitbull, and Beyoncé, the blockbuster film comes home just in time to help families become one with nature and end the summer in Epic style.
In Epic, the animators from Blue Sky Studios paid close attention to details such as the feathers on the hummingbirds, really making Moonhaven and the forest come to life.
The epically beautiful landscape presented in the film allows the viewer to see nature from a different perspective. Everything in Epic has a larger-than-life magical feel.
The feature film – Epic- is set to debut on Blu-ray & DVD on August 20th. To celebrate the occasion we will be giveaway one copy of the movie to a lucky Domesticated Momma reader! This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada!
