For those who cannot wait for the next Ice Age sequel (hitting theaters on July 22nd), Scrat, Manny, Sid,

March 20th (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT), leading into The Passion (8:00-10:00 PM ET

In Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade harried prehistoric bird mom Ethel (Taraji P. Henson, EMPIRE)
entrusts her precious, soon-to-hatch egg to Sid (John Leguizamo). When she
recommends him to her neighbors – a condor mom (Wendy
Williams), Cholly Bear (Gabriel Iglesias) and Gladys Glypto (Lili Estefan) – business booms at his new egg-sitting service.
However, dastardly pirate bunny Squint (Seth Green, FAMILY GUY), who is seeking
revenge on the ICE AGE gang, steals, camouflages and hides all the eggs. Once
again, with Squint’s
twin brother, Clint (Blake Anderson), assisting, Manny (Ray Romano), Diego
(Denis Leary) and the rest of the gang come to the rescue and take off on a
daring mission that turns into the world’s first Easter egg hunt.
