A NUTTY THANKSGIVING
ICE AGE’S SCRAT IS SET TO TAKE FLIGHT IN THE 89TH ANNUAL MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE®
New giant character balloon celebrates next summer’s animated motion picture event “Ice Age: Collision Course,” from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios
NEW YORK, NY – October 22, 2015 – The world’s most beloved acorn-loving movie star is having the best National Nut Day ever, as Ice Age’s Scrat celebrates his debut as a giant character balloon in the 89th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® this November. Star of the blockbuster Twentieth Century Fox/ Blue Sky Studios’ “Ice Age” film franchise, Scrat, will be transformed into a ballooning behemoth, chasing a colossal acorn down the Parade route and into the hearts of millions of fans this holiday season.
“Ice Age’s rambunctious Scrat is sure to be a giant balloon fans of all ages will go nuts for!” said Amy Kule, Executive Producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “A comically whimsical creation, we are thrilled to welcome Scrat and his acorn to the giant balloon line-up of this year’s Macy’s Parade. Our team and millions of Ice Age fans lining the streets of New York City and in homes across the country will be cheering Scrat on as we wait to see if he catches the ultimate treat on Thanksgiving Day.”
“We can’t think of a better way to celebrate a global icon such as Scrat then immortalizing him in one of the most beloved and cherished American events, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade,” said Zachary Eller, Senior Vice President, Marketing Partnerships, 20th Century Fox. “From the moment we began discussing a way for our Ice Age herd to participate, we knew that Scrat chasing that just out-of-reach acorn was the only possible idea!”
Transformed into massive prehistoric proportions in front of more than 3.5 million spectators and over 50 million television viewers nationwide, Scrat will measure approximately, 59-feet long, 24-feet wide and 41-feet tall. Always focused on the hunt and chasing his favorite snack, he is posed ready to pounce on the 21-foot tall acorn that is just slightly out of reach. And what a treat it would be, as it would take more than 15 million real acorns to fill Scrat’s helium version!
The 89th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs nationwide on NBC-TV, on Thursday, November 26, 2015 from 9 a.m. – noon in all time zones. Twentieth Century Fox Pictures/Blue Sky Studios “Ice Age: Collision Course” will be released worldwide in Summer 2016.

Austin, TX — Thursday, November 5, 2015 — El Rey Network will bring the award-winning, longest running sci-fi/comedy series in history, Red vs. Blue, to television for the first time. Premiering December 5th on El Rey Network, all 13 seasons of Rooster Teeth’s Red vs. Blue have been lovingly and carefully curated and formatted from the original digital shorts into 95 half-hour episodes, which will air weekend mornings from 6:00am to 10:00am ET/PT.
“I’ve been wanting to carve out an animated component to El Rey’s lineup and this was just the perfect fit for the network. Red vs. Blue is cool, quirky, badass and a little off-beat,” said El Rey Network Founder and Chairman Robert Rodriguez. “It’s a truly groundbreaking machinima series, with a strong focus on quality writing and pioneering motion capture techniques. I can’t wait for the El Rey Network audience to check out.”
“As young independent filmmakers starting out with no crew but a huge desire to make original content, Robert was a huge inspiration. So it seems incredibly fitting that Red vs. Blue will now have a home on El Rey Network,” said Rooster Teeth Founder and CEO Matt Hullum. “It’s the perfect fit for our brand of action, comedy and general animated mayhem.”
Based on the award-winning Halo® video game franchise, Red vs. Blue is a hilarious and action-packed series set in the distant future that tells the story of two groups of soldiers battling for control of the least desirable piece of real estate in the known universe – a box canyon in the middle of nowhere. Premiering in 2002, Red vs. Blue continues to grow as both a global entertainment phenomenon and popular staple of the Halo universe as it enters its 14th season.
“Red vs. Blue embodies the irreverent humor that lurks beneath Halo’s sci-fi universe but also the creativity that is at the heart of our franchise,” said Kiki Wolfkill, Studio Head of Halo Interactive Entertainment and Channel. “Rooster Teeth is a pioneer in web entertainment and machinima with Red vs. Blue, and we consider the series to be an important part of Halo’s history and future. It combines the best of Halo gaming with Rooster Teeth’s edgy humor on a network renowned for high-quality, exciting content.”
