The movie was released on March 31, 2006. Despite receiving mixed reviews from film critics, the film was positively welcomed from audience who praised its animation, humor, characters, emotional weight, soundtrack, action scenes, character development, and the visuals.

This movie is the first sequel to the 2002 movie, Ice Age. The other three sequels are: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009), Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012), and Ice Age: Collision Course (2016).[1][2] The first sequel to this movie was even more positively welcomed from audience who often calls it the best Ice Age movie, the second one is called good, but not like the previous films while the fifth is hated by both film critics and audience.
