The Academy Awards will add a new category to their ceremony this year. “Shrek,” “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius” and “Monsters Inc.” are all in their own category for Best Animated Film. After the massive success of these movies, 20th Century Fox will be releasing “Ice Age” on March 15.

The film is follows a group of animals that find a human infant during the ice age. The animals include a wooly mammoth, a sabre-toothed tiger and a pair of giant slots. The animals make it their job to reunite the infant with his parents.

“Ice Age” features an all-star cast. Ray Romano, the popular actor whose show “Everybody Loves Raymond” airs on CBS, supplies the voice of one of the main characters, Manfred the Mammoth. Also lending his voice to the movie is Denis Leary, who is currently in the second season of his controversial TV show on ABC, “The Job.” Leary provides the voice of Diego the Sabre-Toothed Tiger, another main character. Rounding out the cast are Diedrich Bader, Cedric The Entertainer, Jane Krakowski and Jack Black. Chris Wedge, director, makes his feature film debut with “Ice Age”. In 1998, Wedge won an Academy Award for his animated short, “Bunny.”

While the movie is expected to do well enough on its own, it also carries the extra weight that “Monster Inc.” had several months ago. When “Monsters Inc.” came out, a major selling point was one of the trailers. The much anticipated trailer was one for “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.” Though this will bring the major fans out of the woodwork, “Ice Age” is still expected to be very successful in theaters this March.
