After 20 years of looking for a nut and a place to bury it, Scrat, from the franchise Ice Age, finally got the fruit. Yesterday (13), the new series, Stories from Scrat, was released on Disney+ as a spin-off of the prehistoric animations that follow Sid, Manny, and Diego. The saber-toothed squirrel has always appeared in the movies with its parallel adventure – but in the same context – looking for a place in the ground to bury its Acorn, although it was never successful.

“In the final days of Blue Sky Studios, a small team of artists came together to make a final scene. This scene is a farewell, a goodbye on our own terms“. Watch:
