Ice Age is a computer-animated comedy film directed by Chris Wedge and co-directed by Carlos Saldanha, based on a screenplay by Michael J. Wilson and released in 2002. It was released by 20th Century Fox on March 15, 2002, as Blue Sky Studios' debut feature picture. The film's voices are provided by Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, and Denis Leary.

The film follows three major characters Manny (Romano), a no-nonsense woolly mammoth; Sid (Leguizamo), a loudmouthed ground sloth; and Diego (Leary), a sarcastic saber-tooth tiger as they stumble upon a human infant and work together to restore it to its tribe during the ice period. Scrat, a wordless "saber-toothed squirrel" spoken by Wedge, is also seen on occasion. Scrat is always looking for a spot in the dirt to bury his acorn.

Ice Age was initially planned as a 2D animated feature by Fox Animation Studios, but it ended up becoming Blue Sky's first full-length animated film when the company was converted from a VFX house to a computer animation studio. The focus changed from creating an action-adventure drama picture to crafting a comedy, and many writers were brought on board, including Michael Berg and Peter Ackerman, to help bring forth a wittier tone.

Ice Age got generally favorable reviews upon its first release and was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards, but lost to Spirited Away. Ice Age: The Meltdown was released in 2006, followed by Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs in 2009, Ice Age: Continental Drift in 2012, and Ice Age: Collision Course in 2016.

(taking place between Continental Drift and the Collision Course). Between 2002 and 2016, seven Ice Age short films were also released.
