In the first trailer, we see Buck, Crash, and Eddie crash through some ice and down into the ‘lost world’, where Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pterodactyls, Triceratops, and more still roam free. It’s the “most dangerous” region in the world, according to Simon Pegg’s Buck, who now has to help keep Crash and Eddie alive in this predatory, ancient land. While they’re are it, Sid the sloth, Diego the sabretooth tiger, Ellie the mastodon, and company are searching for their friends, leading to what should be a wholesome family reunion. Aww.
John C Donkin is directing the animated movie, for 20th Century Animation. He’d previous co-produced the Rio series of kids movies, and this will be his directorial debut. Talk of an Ice Age spin-off stretches back to 2018, and the original plan was to do an animated series before pivoting to a feature.
In addition to the trailer, Simon Pegg provided a humourous video celebrating Disney Plus Day, with an ice sculpture. Unfortunately, the sculpture melted because he got the day wrong. Better luck next time!
