continent adrift.Separated from the rest of the herd, they use an iceberg as a makeshift ship, which launches them on an epic seafaring quest. Manny and the gang are challenged like never before to become heroes and do the impossible, as they encounter exotic sea creatures, explore a
brave new world, and battle ruthless pirates. And Scrat's reunion with his cursed nut catapults him to places no prehistoric squirrel has gone before. And as you can imagine, Scrat's futile chase after his beloved nut actually causes the continents separating and creating global changes.

ICE AGE TIDBITS
Originally, the story was rumored to involve Manny, Sid, Diego, Ellie and Scrat frozen solid and accidentally defrosted in a museum in present day. The film was to be called "Ice Age: Th4w". It is interesting
that each of the previous parts of the franchise has earned more than its predecessor. The first ICE AGE earned $383.3 million worldwide in 2002. It was followed in 2006 by ICE AGE MELTDOWN which
collected $655.4 million. That was topped again by ICE AGE DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS' amazing $884.8 million in 2009.The films had much more success around the world, since non-American public is more family oriented when it comes to movies. Brilliant Irish/British band THE WANTED known for their amazing hits "All Time Low", "Glad You Came" and "Warzone" will sing their latest extremely cheerful single "Chasing the Sun" as the lead song in the movie.
