As you probably know by now, Disney has teamed with LEGO to release a series of Star Wars animated short films set before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Ice Age movies might not earn the fawning critical acclaim of the Pixar movies or the smashing box office numbers of the Minions / Despicable Me series, but they are hardy in their own way. The series has been chugging along for 14 years now, taking in $2.8 billion worldwide over four installments, and a fifth film is due out this summer. In Ice Age: Collision Course, Scrat’s pursuit of that elusive acorn sets off a chain of events that could spell the end of the Ice Age world as we know it… except it probably won’t, because as long as these movies keep making money, Sid, Manny, and Diego are going to keep doing their thing.
