Manny and Ellie await the birth of their mini-mammoth, Sid the sloth creates his own makeshift family by hijacking some dinosaur eggs; and Diego the saber-toothed tiger wonders if he's growing too "soft" hanging with his pals. On a mission to rescue the hapless Sid, the gang ventures into a mysterious underground world, where they have some close encounters with dinosaurs.
Animated Action Adventure - Like the first two films, this is an animated comedy/adventure aimed
at the whole family, with the new 3-D element adding more appeal for
kids. Some crude humor and intense moments may be a bit much for
very young children.

With mammoths experiencing no fewer than six trimesters of pregnancy, Ellie is more than ready for the baby's arrival. She's always been active and independent, so even though Manny wants her to take it easy, Ellie isn't ready to slow down. Ellie's pregnancy so consumes Manny that he is unaware that his friends are going through challenges and changes of their own. Sid, who has developed a kind of younger brother/older brother relationship with Manny, feels that Manny won't let him be a part of his burgeoning family. So when Sid discovers three enormous eggs in a cavern, he decides to start a family of his own. Manny pleads with Sid to return the eggs, but Sid insists on adopting them, and soon three adorable baby dinos are hatched. Although the baby dinos are twice Sid's size, they immediately accept him as their mother and begin to mimic his every move, becoming "Mini-Sids.” Sid's parental instincts kick into overdrive, but the babies' momma – a giant T-Rex – isn't happy about the situation. Complications ensue – as they always do around Sid – leading everyone into an adventure in an incredible underground world.
