A collection of children's animated adventures from the Blue Sky studios.
In 'Epic' (2013), Mary Katherine (voice of Amanda Seyfried) lives in a cabin in the woods with her eccentric father, Professor Bomba (Jason Sudeikis), who studies the local fauna.
One day, when he doesn't return from a hike in the forest, she sets out to find him, inadvertently stumbling across some strange glowing leaves.
Clutching one, Mary Katherine is shrunken down to the forest floor, where, after meeting up with a group of warriors known as the Leafmen, she finds herself helping her new friends in their war to save their world from the clutches of the evil Boggans.
In 'Horton Hears a Who!' (2008), a jungle elephant named Horton (Jim Carrey) discovers a race of tiny beings living in a solitary dandelion.
Recognising the dangers they face, the friendly pachyderm resolves to keep his microscopic pals safe.
However, as Horton is the only one who hears the inhabitants of 'Whoville', his other animal pals are convinced he's gone crazy and resolve to do something about it.
Horton and his miniscule friends must struggle against these impossible odds to prevent disaster.
In 'Ice Age' (2002), a group of three animals embark upon an epic journey at the dawn of the great ice age.
Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo), Manfred the woolly mammoth (Ray Romano), and Diego the sabre-toothed tiger (Denis Leary) team up to help return a human baby to its father, and must risk life and limb as they traverse boiling lava pits and travel through dangerous ice caves to complete their mission.
In 'Ice Age 2: The Meltdown' (2006), Manny is ready to start a family, but nobody has seen another mammoth for a long time; in fact, Manny thinks he may be the last one.
That is until he miraculously finds Ellie (Queen Latifah), the only female mammoth left in the world.
The only problem is, they can't stand each other... In 'Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs' (2009), Scrat the squirrel (Chris Wedge) is still trying to get his paws on that ever-elusive nut, Manny and Ellie anxiously await the birth of their mini-mammoth, and Diego wonders if he's growing too laid-back living the life of a pampered house cat.
Meanwhile, Sid the sloth gets into trouble when he creates his own makeshift family by hijacking some unusually large eggs, and inadvertently discovers a mysterious underground world where dinosaurs still roam.
In 'Ice Age 4: Continental Drift' (2012), when the entire continent is set adrift following a global cataclysm, Manny, Diego and Sid find themselves separated from the rest of the herd.
Commandeering a nearby iceberg as a makeshift boat, they take to the high seas.
Fearsome sea creatures and battlethirsty pirates are among the challenges faced by the intrepid trio as they ride the waves of the world in search of their family.
In 'Rio' (2011), Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a rare macaw living in a bookshop in small-town Minnesota.
Believing himself to be the last of his kind, he is thrilled to hear that a female macaw of the same species has been spotted in South America.
Blu must now overcome his social ineptitude and fear of flying and set out for Rio de Janeiro to track down the feisty and independent Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and try to win her heart.
Finally, in 'Robots' (2005), Rodney Copperbottom (Ewan McGregor) is a small town robot who has a gift for inventing things and a hope of moving beyond his quaint surroundings.
Dreaming of doing something better than working alongside his dad in a restaurant, Rodney, armed with his unique talent for inventing, embarks on a journey to Robot City to meet his idol, the majestic inventor Bigweld (Mel Brooks).
