As per Galen, Ice Age 6 will definitely develop
Finally, Ice Age: Collision Course has been released in theaters. Its excellent performance over box-office has increased the expectation of Ice Age 6 among its fans.
Ice Age is one of the best and one of the most profitable animation franchises of 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios.
All the credit for the success of this franchise should be given to ‘Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs’ and Ice Age: Continental Drift,’ which are the 3rd and 4th part of Ice Age movies, respectively. These parts had grossed more than $850 million over box-office.
Recently, Ice Age: Collision Course has been released in many parts of the world. Now, on 22nd July, it will hit the screens of USA. This is the reason that the searches of this movie is very high on Google.
This movie has already grossed $127 million over box-office. This movie has still to be released in China, Hong Kong and USA. Where it will definitely increase its gross with huge amount.
The rapid gross of this movie in 25 countries has increased the hopes of Ice Age 6. The co-director of Ice Age 5, Galen T. Chu, has also told that he has some plans for Ice Age 6. In July 2016, some internal sources of Ice Age franchise have also hinted that the 6th installment of this Ice Age franchise is under development.
I have watched Ice Age 5, and didn’t find it as good as the last two parts. But, it still has some potential to attract huge crowd towards theaters, especially children. The best part of this movie franchise is its stories, which are perfectly interrelated to real situations, which might destroy our beautiful world. And Ice Age: Collision Course has one of such stories.
Storyline of Ice Age 5
In Ice Age: Collision Course, we can see family of Manny, who tried to save their Ice Age from extinction by collision of an asteroid on Earth, which had also destroyed the whole Kingdom of dinosaurs. To know how Manny and his family save their Ice Age from Collision Course, you must watch this movie.
In each and every part, we have seen some new entries in family of Manny. In this part, there is a new entry, Julian (Adam DeVine), who is fiancé of Manny’s daughter, Peaches. Audience are also desperate to see what will our Scrat (Chris Wedge) do for his nut. In this part, we will see him in the space-ship and also come to know about how Scrat made our universe.
Performance of Ice Age 5
Even after a good collection, Ice Age: Collision Course, didn’t manage to impress critics. This is the reason that it has gotten 22% rating from Rotten Tomatoes on the basis of 23 reviews, Metacritic has given it 37 out of 100 on the basis of 5 reviews and IMDb has given it 5.9/10 on the votes of 3,538 users.
Ice Age Movie Franchise performance
These stats were the poorest for this series in comparison to its previous parts. The other parts of this franchise has gotten ratings, which are: Rotten Tomatoes had given 77%, 57%, 45% and 37% to Ice Age, Ice Age: The Meltdown, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Ice Age: Continental Drift, respectively, which were the first- four parts of this franchise.
Whereas, Metacritic had given 60, 58, 50 and 49 to its first four parts and IMDb had given these parts 7.6, 6.9, 7 and 6.6 out of 10, respectively.
Each movie of this franchise has managed to collect huge profit from box-office. First-four parts of this movie have grossed $383m, $655m, $884m and $877 million, respectively. And the 5th part is expected to do great business as well.
This franchise has also won many Awards and nominations, including one nomination for Oscar Award.
Journey of Ice Age to Ice Age: Collision Course
I like this movie because its story is moving in straight direction with new challenges, which always put Manny’s family in a deep trouble of survival.
In the first part, we see how Manny finds his family of different creatures. We see how a tiger (Diego), mammoth (Manny) and a ground sloth (Sid) bind with each other and put first step in the foundation of their happy family, while saving a small human child.
This part has also taught us the real meaning of humanity, which makes human beings different from animals, and now which is vanishing from the nature of human beings.
In the second part, we saw that Manny was not the only mammoth, who remained alive on the Earth, as he thought. He found another mammoth, Ellie, in the journey of survival from the threat of submerging in the melting water of glacier. In the end of this part, he added Ellie and her two con-possum brothers of Ellie, Crash and Eddie.
Ice Age: Dawn of Dinosaurs was purely different from other parts of this movie franchise. Because in this part, we have seen the whole family of Manny, which went on the journey to find Sid, who was taken by a mother Dinosaur with her egg. In this journey, a one-eyed weasel, Buck, helps them. He is a genius and clever weasel.
In Ice Age: Continental Drift, Manny and his family went on a new journey of survival. In this journey, all of them were separated from each other. Where we see a gang of pirates, which creates many hindrances in their path. This part has included the entry of a white tigress, Shira in the family of Manny, as Diego’s lover.
The best thing of this franchise is to see Scrat, the squirrel-rat, who employs many efforts to get an ever elusive acorn, which remained his sole desire till the 5th part of this movie.
In the search of the acorn, Scrat does many foolish things, which makes us laugh. Now, in Ice Age: Collision Course, the desire of getting the acorn took Scrat into the space.
After these parts, audience are thinking that what will be in Ice Age 6 and what our Scrat will do for the nut.
Crew of Ice Age Franchise
The first part of Ice Age was directed by Chris Wedge and Carlos Saldanha, but in the second part Carlos alone did this job. In the third part, Carlos got the support of Mike Thurmeier, but Mike took the momentum from Carlos and directed last two movies with Steven Martino and Galen T. Chu, respectively.
Now, Galen has already shown his desire to do next part of this franchise. So, we might again see him as director of Ice Age 6, with Mike or someone else. We might also see all new team of directors for the next part.
Like the director of this movie, its writers, editors, cinematographer and screenplay writers had also changed, movie after movie. The first part of this movie was written by Michael J. Wilson. He also helped Michael Berg and Peter Ackerman in writing of its screenplay.
Out of these three, only Michael Berg remained a part of this movie as writer or screenplay writer. Whereas, all others have been replaced. So, Michael Berg might again write the script of Ice Age 6, with someone else.
The executive producers of this franchise are Chris Meledandri (1st and 2nd parts), Chris Wedge (2nd to present) and Carlos Saldanha (4th to present).
Hence, there are strong chances that Chris Wedge and Carlos will remain the executive producer of this franchise to encash its popularity for long time. We might again see Carlos and Chris, assisting Lori Forte, original producer of this franchise, in the work of production.
Ice Age 6 Expected Cast
The voice over of lead characters of Ice Age might also remain same as the previous one. We might again hear the voices of Ray Romano (Manny), John Leguizamo (Sid), Denis Leary (Diego), Chris Wedge (Scrat), Queen Latifah (Ellie), Seann William (Crash), Josh Peck (Eddie), Simon Pegg (Buck) and others. We might also hear voices of some big stars, next time. This will depend on the casting team of this movie.
Ice Age 6 Release Date
That’s why, audience are waiting for any news related to Ice Age 6. Right now, nothing more related to Ice Age 6 has been revealed, yet. So, we can’t predict the actual release date of Ice Age 6. But, there is strong belief that Ice Age 6 might be released in the end of 2019.
I like this franchise very much and the character of Sid was my favorite. His and Scrat’s foolishness is the life of this movie franchise. That’s why, I will pray that the next part should be focused more on Sid and Scrat. And I also want that the poor Scrat should become a part of Manny’s family.
