What is The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild about?

The film follows the thrill-seeking possum brothers Crash and Eddie as they head out into the world on their own, looking for some distance and independence from their sister Ellie.

Things don’t go to plan, and the duo is soon trapped in the Lost World, a cave underground. They’re not stuck for long before their friend, dinosaur-hunting weasel Buck Wild, comes to their rescue.
