Neil deGrasse Tyson in Ice Age

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has taken it upon himself to point out the scientific inaccuracy of some sci-fi movies, taking some of the fun out of the fiction part of the genre. However, it’ll be interesting to see if he goes out of his way to point out the inaccuracies in the forthcoming animated sequel Ice Age: Collision Course, especially since he’ll have a small role in the movie, appearing as an anthropomorphic animal version of himself.

Ice Age Collision Course Trailer

This year the Ice Age franchise will have been going on for 14 years. That means that some of the kids who grew up with the first movie may be having kids of their own now, which is a bit depressing. But that just means 20th Century Fox has a new round of kids to crack up at the silly prehistoric antics of their latest sequel, Ice Age: Collision Course.

As we’ve seen extensively before, Scrat is still chasing his acorn, but he ends up getting launched into space, creating a cosmic disaster, and ends up triggering a slew of meteors headed straight towards Earth. It’s up to Sid (John Leguizamo), Manny (Ray Romano) and Diego (Denis Leary) and the rest of their weird friends to figure out what’s going on in order to survive what could be a world-ending disaster.

Fox and Blue Sky’s animated film series hasn’t been going on for quite¬†that long, but eleven years is still a pretty long lifespan for a movie franchise. And like the current ice age, its still going.

The studio has just announced that Ice Age 5 will be out on July 15, 2016, which puts it almost exactly four years after the fourth film was released. Additionally, Fox has also set a new date for the previously announced Anubis, about a mummy curse. Hit the jump for more details on both films.
