The best thing about the Ice Age franchise for me (and for no doubt many others) has to be Scrat, the poor prehistoric saber-toothed squirrel who will do absolutely anything to get just an acorn.

For three movies past now, I’ve been willing him onto reaching his goal! Apple have released a new short for the fourth installment in the Ice Age franchise¬†Ice Age: Continental Drift and if you’re a Scrat fan, you’re going to love it!

Ice Age: Continental Drift features voices from Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Seann William Scott, Josh Peck, Queen Latifah, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Aziz Ansari, Keke Palmer, Drake, Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, Nick Frost, Joy Behar and is directed by Steve Martino and Michael Thurmeier.

Scrat’s nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he’s been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences – a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.

Come on Scrat, you can do it!
