'The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild' is the latest addition to the famous 'Ice Age' franchise. Starring Buck (voiced by Simon Pegg), Eddie (voiced by Aaron Harris), and Crash (Vincent Tong) in the lead, the movie revolves around a rollercoaster ride of emotions, funny one-liners, and quick-witted humor. If you are a die-hard Disney fan, the dynamic between the trio might remind you of the bond between Timon, Pumba, and Simba from the evergreen 'Lion King' franchise. 


'The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild' Review: Iconic movie's spin-off is a fun watch

What happened between Zendaya and Disney? From racist publicist to contracts gone awry, here is what went down

As we've seen in all the movies of the 'Ice Age' franchise, it's always easy to bank on the possum brothers to stir up new trouble. It's no different in this movie either! Once the two realize that they don't want to be constantly bossed around or thought of as inferior to the mammoths, and a sabretooth, Eddie and Crash leave their "family", in the hopes of finding themselves and living independently. 

In a turn of events, Orson (the greedy Triceratops), who wants to take over the Lost World, enters into a tiff with the one-eyed weasel, Buck, and his comrade, Zee the zorilla. The boys, having spent some time away from their "herd" and after training with Zee, attack Orson and his winged friends - all with their gut instincts and quick wit. 

To their surprise, Manny, Diego, Sid, and Ellie witness all of this with their own eyes, since they stumbled upon the Lost World, in search of the little guys. 

Even though Buck had told the brothers that they could head back home from the mission to fight Orson, Eddie and Crash if they have a change of heart. They ask Ellie if it's okay for them to stay since they like their adventurous lives in Buck's world a whole lot better. The family shares a tearful goodbye, but they know to expect the boys for meals on almost a daily basis (neither have cooking skills).

The last leg of the movie also reflects the possums' growth, since their first appearance on the franchise. They've both learned that it's important to be independent, learn skills that are vital, and always protect what and who they love. 

'The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild' was released on 28 January 2022.
