The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild is a 2022 American computer-animated adventure comedy film directed by John C. Donkin, in his feature directorial debut, with a screenplay by Jim Hecht, Ray DeLaurentis, and William Schifrin. It serves as a spin-off and the sixth installment in the Ice Age franchise and is set after the events of Ice Age: Collision Course. The film stars the voices of Simon Pegg (reprising his role as Buck Wild), Vincent Tong, Aaron Harris, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Justina Machado also starring in the film.
It follows the two opossum brothers Crash and Eddie and their adventure to becoming independent possums alongside the titular character Buck Wild. Originally planned to be a television series, The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild was redeveloped into a feature-length film. Produced by 20th Century Animation and released under the Walt Disney Pictures label, it was released on January 28, 2022, as a Disney+ original film.
It has received generally negative reviews from critics and viewers who felt that it lacked a primary focus on the titular character and criticized its recasting of voice actors, animation quality, the absence of Scrat, and the decision to produce the film without the involvement of Blue Sky Studios. The possibility of a sequel to the film was discussed by executive producer Lori Forte.
