Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift

Twen­ti­eth Cen­tury Fox Ani­ma­tion and Blue Sky Stu­dios announced Mon­day the voice cast for Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift, the fourth entry in Blue Sky’s block­buster fran­chise, which has grossed over $4 bil­lion in all media.

Fox will release the ani­mated com­edy in 3D on July 13, 2012.

Ray Romano is back as Manny, the woolly mam­moth and the herd’s “Big Daddy,” Queen Lat­i­fah returns as Ellie — Manny’s sig­nif­i­cant other, Denis Leary rejoins the herd as the saber-toothed tiger Diego, John Leguizamo is at it again as ter­mi­nally goofy sloth Sid, and Seann William Scott and Josh Peck reprise pos­sums Crash and Eddie.

Join­ing the ever-growing Ice Age fam­ily for Con­ti­nen­tal Drift is a stel­lar lineup, includ­ing Jeremy Ren­ner, an Acad­emy Award nom­i­nee for The Hurt Locker and The Town (and whose upcom­ing films include Mis­sion: Impos­si­ble – Ghost Pro­to­col and The Bourne Legacy), who por­trays Gutt, a self-styled mas­ter of the high seas who’s deter­mined to make Manny, Sid and Diego part of his crew; Wanda Sykes as Sid’s stow­away Granny, who causes all sorts of prob­lems for our heroes; Aziz Ansari as Squint, a pre­his­toric rab­bit who fan­cies him­self a tough guy; actress-pop music star Keke Palmer as Peaches, Manny and Ellie’s head­strong teenage daugh­ter; hip hop sen­sa­tion Drake as Ethan, a hand­some young woolly mam­moth who has his eye on Peaches; and Jen­nifer Lopez as Shira, a sabre-toothed tigress who melts Diego’s heart.

Also tak­ing on star­ring roles are Heather Mor­ris, Joy Behar, Nicki Minaj, Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, Nick Frost, Kunal Nay­yar, Alain Cha­bat and JB Smoove.

Also return­ing is Scrat (again voiced by Chris Wedge), who in the first Ice Age (2002) emerged as a movie icon. In Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift, 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 earth-shattering upheavals, Sid reunites with his long-lost fam­ily, and the gang encoun­ters a rag­tag menagerie of col­or­ful new char­ac­ters deter­mined to stop them from return­ing home.

Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift is directed by Steve Mar­tino and Michael Thurmeier, and pro­duced by Lori Forte and John Donkin.
