The new Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild trailer is set in The Lost World. Ice Age is a franchise developed by Fox that has already had five movies as well as several shorts and specials. The stars of the series are a number of creatures during the Ice Age time who travel to find love, friendship, a better place to settle or for some of them, just an acorn. In this Ice Age sequel, audiences will see the return of Buck Wild (Simon Pegg), the one-eyed weasel that hunts dinosaurs. Buck made his first appearance in the Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
Blue Studios was shut down when Disney got Fox, however, it doesn’t stop the continuation of the franchise. Beside its beloved characters, the Ice Age: Adventures of Buck Wild also marks the directorial debut of the series producer John C. Donkin. The movie is co-written by Jim Hecht, the writer behind Ice Age: The Meltdown, strengthening fans’ belief in the sequel.
Now, in the new movie’s trailer, Disney is featuring the return of Buck in his own adventure. The movie will pick up the “hilarious escapades of the sub-zero heroes as they create more prehistoric pandemonium.” It will also focus on Crash and Eddie, the possum brothers, who are trapped in the huge Lost World cave facing a horde of dinosaurs. Fortunately, Buck Wild arrives in time to save them from what they call “dinosaur domination.” You can check out the trailer below:
Simon Pegg has become well-known among Hollywood for the past few decades with his appearance in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy as well as starring in several highly appreciated projects along the way. Not only does he play Scotty in the Kelvin-timeline Star Trek movies but he is also the voice actor behind lots of animated projects, for example Phineas and Ferb, The Boxtrolls, Archer and The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
The Ice Age series has always been among kids’ favorites and stood the test of time as it has lasted for nearly 20 years. It is expected that the franchise will continue for at least another decade as it is joined by amazing new characters and voices, including Pegg’s. With several storylines to follow throughout the era and a set of bright, frightenig and funny characters waiting to be brought to screen, the setting of the Ice Age is more than appropriate for such an animated franchise. The Ice Age: Adventures of Buck Wild is expected to prove that despite a change of ownership, the franchise will manage to succeed.
