Blue Sky Studios, Inc. is an American computer animation film studio based in Greenwich, Connecticut. Since 2019, it has been a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Studios.
The studio was founded in 1987 by Chris Wedge, Michael Ferraro, Carl Ludwig, Alison Brown, David Brown, and Eugene Troubetzkoy after their employer MAGI, one of the visual effects studios behind Tron, shut down. Using its in-house rendering software, the studio had worked on visual effects for commercials and films before completely dedicating itself to animated film production. The studio’s first feature, Ice Age, was released in March 2002 by 20th Century Fox.
In March 2019, the studio was acquired by Disney, upon their acquisition of 21st Century Fox assets.
Blue Sky has produced 13 feature films, with its latest release being Spies in Disguise in December 2019, and their next release being Nimona in January 2022. Ice Age and Rio are the studio’s most successful franchises, while Horton Hears a Who! and The Peanuts Movie are its most critically praised films. As of 2013, Scrat, a character from the Ice Age films, is the studio’s mascot.
