We could show you scenes from the biggest family holiday release, Ice Age: Continental Drift, but do yourself a favor and go to the Beverly Center and watch them inside the Ice Age Ice Palace (located on the 6th level). You’ll get to enter this spectacular interactive display featuring a 30-foot ice dome with falling snow, a light show, see footage from the movie, visit with Santa, receive a special Ice Age gift and have the option to pre-order Ice Age: Continental Drift on Blu-ray and DVD (to be released December 11, 2012).
We were there on a very special day featuring signing Santa and had the opportunity to meet Sean Berdy (ABC Family’s Switched At Birth). Sean signed 1/2 of the characters from the movie for a PIP signed version of Ice Age: Continental Drift enabling the adventures of Scrat’s acorn pursuit – adrift on an iceberg in pirate infested waters – to be enjoyed by deaf and hearing impaired family members, too. My daughter, who is hearing, was inspired to begin to learn ASL after watching episodes of Switched At Birth. This new feature presents a fantastic opportunity to inspire and connect families in new and exciting ways.
In the video, you’ll have a chance to peek inside the Ice Palace with us and meet KeKe Palmer, the lovely young woman who played the title role in Akeelah And The Bee. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend this uplifting film! In Ice Age: Continental Drift, KeKe voices the role of Peaches the teenage daughter of Mom, Ellie (Queen Latifah lends her voice) and Dad (voiced by Ray Ramano). We also had the chance to chat with Award Winning Character Designer, Peter De Seve who has brought his talents to all four of the Ice Age Movies.
