‘The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild’ Trailer Reveals New Sequel Coming to Disney+ (Video)
A new “Ice Age” movie is on the way, but this one’s heading directly to streaming.
Disney+ unveiled the official trailer for “The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild” on Tuesday, a new film in the “Ice Age” franchise that puts Simon Pegg’s one-eyed weasel Buck front and center. Eager for a little independence, possum brothers Crash and Eddie set out to find a place of their own but soon find themselves trapped beneath the ice in a massive cave inhabited by dinosaurs. They are rescued by the one-eyed, adventure-loving weasel Buck Wild, and together, with the help of some new friends, embark on a mission to save the Lost World from dinosaur domination.
The film was originally being developed as a Buck Wild TV series spinoff, but when Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, the story was re-developed as a feature film. The first five “Ice Age” films were produced by Fox and the now-shuddered Blue Sky Animation Studios, but “The Adventures of Buck Wild” is a Disney+ original. It will be released exclusively on the streaming service on Jan. 28.
Pegg reprises his role as Buck Wild in the film alongside a voice cast that also includes Utkarsh Ambudkar (“Free Guy”), Justina Machado (“One Day at a Time”), Vincent Tong (“Ninjago”) and Aaron Harris. “The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild” is directed by John C. Donkin (“Ice Age: Continental Drift” producer), written by Jim Hecht (“Ice Age: The Meltdown”), Ray DeLaurentis (“Fairly Odd Parents”) and Will Schifrin (“Bunsen is a Beast”) from a story by Jim Hecht, with Lori Forte (the “Ice Age” franchise) serving as executive producer.
