Once upon a time, there was a little studio called MAGI/Synthavision. In 1987, having completed some of the effects on the ground-breaking Creator/{{Disney}} film ''Film/{{Tron}}'' and some CG animation for commercials, an employee named Chris Wedge gathered a bunch of his co-workers and formed a studio of his own. They produced some effects for live-action films like ''Film/JoesApartment'', ''Film/FightClub'' and ''Film/AlienResurrection'', along with their first short film ''Bunny'', which Wedge directed. In the wake of the CG cartoon movement (Creator/{{Pixar}} had released ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' a year before ''Bunny'' was awarded Best Animated Short in the Oscars), the studio just happened to be bought by Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox to help fish them out of their failing 2-D feature animation unit. And the rest is [[WesternAnimation/IceAge prehistory]].

Now, the success of their future productions will be complicated in 2013 onward to a degree with rival Creator/DreamWorksAnimation joining Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox as its distributor as well, which will require a careful balancing of release dates and promotion efforts. These efforts could be doing more harm than good, as Blue Sky hasn't released a ground-breakingly stellar feature film in years. With the [[WesternAnimation/IceAge5CollisionCourse 4th ''Ice Age'' sequel]] performing the worst in the franchise yet, and in the midst of new successful contenders like Illumination Entertainment, they got a ways to go.

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: Averted. While the majority of their films are rated PG, they do successfully aim for G's on certain films, even going back and editing the first ''Rio'' before its release to bring it down to a G.
