Fox Greenlights “Ice Age 5”

Fox Greenlights "Ice Age 5"

Fox Animation Studios and Blue Sky Studios have officially green-lit Ice Age 5, slated for a July 15, 2016 release. This news should come as a surprise to, well, NO ONE, as films that reach Part 4 rarely adhere to such age-old adages as ‘Leave well enough alone’ and/or ‘Less is more.’
In fact, in the case of the Ice Age films, more appears to actually mean more. LOTS MORE. With last year’s Ice Age: Continental Drift earning $874.9 million worldwide (bringing the series’ total haul to a whopping $2.8 billion), the ‘end’ that the films’ characters continually fear appears less and less likely to occur any time soon.
The announcement of Ice Age 5 officially makes the summer of ’16 the Summer of Studio Sequels, with Pixar releasing Finding Dory and DreamWorks releasing How to Train Your Dragon 3 — BOTH on June 17.
Originality must’ve died with the dinosaurs.

Is this Cartoon Brew or Cartoon Research? This article sorta feels like it belongs in the former.

Don't Blue Sky realise that nobody cares about the three leads anymore? I still want a Scrat spin-off where we see what happens to him after causing that volcano to erupt.
