iStoryTime, In Partnership With Fox Consumer Products, Launches The Ice Age Movie Storybook App Collection To Celebrate Launch of Ice Age: Continental Drift In Theaters
Santa Barbara, California – August 22, 2012 – iStoryTime and Fox Consumer Products, released the Ice Age Storybook App Collection for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch just in time to experience the paleolithic adventures of Manny, Sid, Diego and the beloved herd in the latest film installment of the successful animated franchise. The Collection will engage readers on a new level, immersing them in the world of Ice Age beyond the big screen. The Ice Age Storybook App Collection features character audio narration and vivid imagery from the motion picture franchise, offering parents and children an engaging reading experience through the series which includes:
Ice Age: Manny, a woolly mammoth, has been roped by Sid the Sloth into helping reunite an abandoned human baby named Roshan with his family. They are joined by Diego, a saber-toothed tiger who befriends Sid and Manny. As the three sub-zero heroes make their way across the vast, ice-covered landscape, another creature, a prehistoric squirrel- rat known as Scrat, tries desperately to carry out his mission in life – to bury an acorn – which, alas, triggers calamitous events.
Ice Age: The Meltdown: Manny, Sid and Diego embark on another incredible adventure. The Ice Age is coming to an end, and the animals are delighting in a melting paradise that is their new world. When disaster threatens, the sub-zero heroes embark on a mission across an ever-changing, increasingly dangerous landscape towards their salvation.
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs: The sub-zero heroes return, this time beneath the ice, discovering a world of dinosaurs. This incredible and immense underground environment provides a sharp contrast to the wintry environments of the first Ice Age story settings, and dwarfs even the vastness of the above-ground Ice Age. It’s a land of danger, massive creatures, mammal-eating plants, a daredevil weasel, and a wily romantic foil for Scrat, named Scratte.
Ice Age: Continental Drift: Scrat’s nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he’s been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences – a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny and the herd encounter a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.
