Despite closing in 2021 - the geniuses at the company have released a short clip of Scrat
the acorn-loving sabretooth squirrel - as a final goodbye. But what happened to Blue Sky Studios?
Blue Sky Studios, Inc. was an American computer animation film studio based in Greenwich, Connecticut.
The company was founded by Chris Wedge, Michael Ferraro, Carl Ludwig, Alison Brown, David Brown,
and Eugene Troubetzkoy in 1987 - the same team behind Tron (1982).
The studio initially made visual effects for commercials and films before dedicating itself solely to animated film production.
Its first feature, Ice Age - the story of a group of mammals including a mammoth called Manny and prehistoric
sloth called Sid surviving the Paleolithic age - was released in 2002 by 20th Century Fox.
Blue Sky Studios was acquired by the aforementioned mega film studio in 2019.
What happened Blue Sky
But when Disney bought the mega film firm in 2019, it was expected that Blue Sky Studios would be collapsed into their animation wing.
