Everyone’s favourite prehistoric trio returns to the big screen for yet another animated escapade, this time faced with the immeasurable challenge of climate change. The fourth in a delightfully entertaining series charting the adventures of a sarcastic sabretooth tiger, a benevolent mammoth and a socially stunted sloth, Ice Age: Continental Drift marks the ten year anniversary of the film that started it all.

Sid (Leguizamo), Manny (Romano) and Diego (Leary) traverse the arctic waters at the helm of an iceberg ship, after their continent begins to fracture and drift apart. Along the way they encounter new adversaries and accumulate an assortment of new friends, battling roguish pirates and encountering exotic sea creatures in their own exhilarating Odyssey.

Packed with humour and excitement, Ice Age: Continental Drift introduces Sid’s long lost family, while Diego is finally afforded a witty and sarcastic love interest in the form of the sabretooth tiger, Shira (Lopez). Antagonistic brothers Eddie (Peck) and Crash (Scott) also return for this sequel, along with bickering squirrel-esque mammals Scrat (Wedge) and Scratte (Disher), and the petulant teenage mammoth, Peaches (Palmer).

Like its predecessors, Ice Age: Continental Drift features a spectacularly star studded cast, including appearances from Drake, Nicki Minaj, Nick Frost, Queen Latifah and Jennifer Lopez. For a series now on its fourth installment, Ice Age: Continental Drift has a refreshingly innovative storyline, and still delivers on the comedy front. Steve Martino’s directing debut in this series provides an engaging originality to the to the Ice Age franchise, whilst still maintaining the familiar characterization of these beloved prehistoric beasts.
