Ice Age: Collision Course is the upcoming fifth movie of the Ice Age franchise, which simply refuses to go away (not that we want it to by any stretch). We love Scrat’s acorn-centric misadventures, but it appears the prehistoric creature has run out of places on Earth to store his beloved acorn—so he somehow ends up in outer space in tis just-released trailer for the movie.
Once out there, he causes the moon to collide into a group of planets arranged like billiards balls, as they collide with each other to form constellations, Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, and our solar system as we know it today. It’s even revealed how Saturn got its ring: the planet just rolled into it, like a golf ball in the hole.
It’s cute, but we don’t think this outlandish theory of the origins of the solar system would get a nod of approval from astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who incidentally also appears in the movie. New cast members Tyson, Nick Offerman, Adam DeVine, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Melissa Rauch, Michael Strahan, Stephanie Beatriz, Max Greenfield, and Jessie J will be joining the returning cast from the previous films: Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Queen Latifah, Seann William Scott, Josh Peck, Simon Pegg, Keke Palmer, Wanda Sykes, and Jennifer Lopez.
The star-studded movie will hit theaters on July 22, 2016, so until then, let’s speculate in the comments about what sorts of characters the new cast members will play. Surely Offerman will portray some type of mustachioed creature.
