The Misadventures of Scrat’, the sad farewell of the beloved squirrel

And, following this and other news, we have the soulless Ice Age: The Adventures of Buck (2022).

Directed by newcomer John C. Donkin for The Walt Disney Studios from a script by Jim Hecht, William Schifrin and Ray DeLaurentis, this sixth feature in the franchise lacks the Kaffir spirit and any other kind of spirit that makes us fall in love with its best deliveries; and it even seems to be one of the company’s second-tier by-products. Pure and sad trash; Yes without the unforgettable Scrat Already.

For this reason, every time the squirrel peeks ice age Yes Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2006), the two most satisfying chapters, by Chris Wedge and Carlos Saldanha, and even in the other three, the cinematic level rises by several wholes.

Even though Ice Age 3: Rise of the Dinosaurs (2009), Ice Age 4: The Formation of the Continents (2012) and The Ice Age: The Great Cataclysm (2016) result significantly lower to their predecessors. As much as the episodes from The Misadventures of Scrat before some previous shorts; namely the hilarious tassels (2002), No time for nuts (2006) in particular and Scrat – cosmic disaster (2015).
