I’ve been pretty impressed with the marketing for the fourth installment of the Ice Age franchise, Ice Age Continental Drift. We’ve had some cute trailers and clips as well as that parody of (or homage to) The Artist that was just adorable. I’m a sucker for (good) animation and even though the previous films weren’t exactly on my radar, the more I see of this one, the more I think I should remedy that.Today we have yet another new trailer (via HeyUGuys), with more new footage and while Scrat is still the main character, we do get more of Manny and Diego as well.
Scrat’s nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he’s been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences – a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.
Ice Age: Continental Drift features the voices of Ray Romano as Manny, John Leguizamo as Sid, Denis Leary as Diego, Seann William Scott as Crash, Josh Peck as Eddie, Queen Latifah as Ellie, and new voices Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Aziz Ansari, Keke Palmer, Drake, Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, Nick Frost and Joy Behar. It opens 6th July in the UK and July 13 in the US and Canada.
