The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild is a 2020 computer animated comedy adventure film directed by John C. Donkin and produced by 20th Century Animation. It's a spin-off to the Ice Age franchise and it focuses on Buck, Crash, Eddie and a female zorilla named Zee trying to stop an evil talking dwarf Triceratop named Orson that wants to rule the Lost World. Simon Pegg reprises his role of Buck while Seann William Scott and Josh Peck are replaced by Vincent Tong and Aaron Harris in the roles of Crash and Eddie.

It premiered on Disney+ on 28 January and was later released in some theaters, becoming one of the highest grossing movies of that year. Despite receiving mixed reviews from film critics, the film was well welcomed from audience that praised its story, characters, writing, humor and themes, while criticizing the animation in some parts of the movie for being clearly unfinished and the absence of some voice actors.

One month after the events of Ice Age: Collision Course, Crash and Eddie are tired of being treated like babies and wants to find their own place, especially after destroying the habitat of Manny, Sid, Diego and Ellie.

That night they escape and they go back to the old valley chosing it as their new home (they find a non-destroyed zone) but they get thrown underground and they find another bridge to the Dinosaur World after Buck destroyed the old one and they decide to go there to live a life of adventures with the weasel but they're chased by some Raptors after their leader, a dwarf talking Triceratop named Orson that hates mammals, decided to make them their snack, however they're saved by Buck as he was flying with his new pteranodon pet Penelope.

Buck wants to bring the duo back to home since he believes them unable to survive in the Dinosaur World but he says he will do it once he defeated Orson, that wants go rule the Dinosaur World with his Raptors and to get rid of mammals. Once they're on Buck's home, Orson shows up and he put a rock in the entry.

After explaining his plan, Orson succeeds to capture Buck, Crash and Eddie using gas but they're saved by a female zorilla named Zee, an old friend and love interest of Buck that helps them to find Momma T-Rex so she can help them to defeat Orson.

However, Momma T-Rex has a pain in one of her teeth and they try to remove that tooth but while doing it Zee had to use her stanch to keep her calm during the operation which made her confused and unable to fight the Raptors when Orson arrives.

Buck offers himself to Orson as his prisoner so that Zee, Crash and Eddie can escape and Orson accepts delighted that he won. However, Zee trains Crash and Eddie to become better adventuriers and fighters and they succesfully free Buck from his cage saving him right when Orson was about to execute him in front of everyone by feeding him to his Raptors.

Buck, Zee, Crash and Eddie start fighting against Orson and his allies and Manny, Sid, Diego, Ellie and Momma T-Rex arrives to help them. Crash and Eddie managesto temporarily control the Raptors and they send them to chase and eat Orson instead as the latter runs away in terror.

Cast

Aditionally, Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary and Queen Latifah voices their respective roles of Manny, Sid, Diego and Ellie but they appear only in the opening and ending of the film in a minor role.

Trivia

  • Scrat is still trapped in space, presumably still struggling to command the UFO, and therefore unable to actually appear but he gets referenced in a drawing seen in Buck's home which shows him in the UFO (an obvious Easter Egg). Peaches is also mentioned when Manny says to Crash and Eddie that at some point adults should move over implying that Peaches and Julian already moved away. Shira and Brooke aren't seen or mentioned but it's safe to assume they were hanging out.
