The Longest Daycare

Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift will fea­ture more than pals Man­fred, Sid, Diego, Ellie and Scrat when it pre­mieres in July. Rather than the usual short fea­tur­ing Scrat chas­ing his acorn, the fourth Ice Age movie will reach out to America’s most dys­func­tional fam­ily with The Longest Day­care.

Announced after the sea­son finale of The Simp­sons on Sun­day, the new the­atri­cal short will fea­ture the youngest fam­ily mem­ber, Mag­gie. The short has been pro­duced in 3D, as has Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift.

It’s hard to do a 20-minute Mag­gie episode, but in four min­utes it’s great. She’s like Char­lie Chap­lin,” Simp­sons exec­u­tive pro­ducer Al Jean com­mented to Enter­tain­ment Weekly exclu­sively. David Sil­ver­man directs.

Mag­gie go back to the Ayn Rand School for Tots. Each child through an air­port security-style test­ing machine to mea­sure their future. Mag­gie is scanned and the machine responds, “Noth­ing Spe­cial”, so they put her in an area that’s not all that great.

The Longest Day­care and Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift will pre­miere in the United States on July 13, 2012.
