The Ice Age media franchise kicked off nearly two decades ago and a new film is expected in early 2022. Not only have the movies been a hit, but so have the short films that have been released over the decades.
Who Plays in Ice Age?
Well, since this is an animated series of movies, we have a voice cast. The cast, however, is about as legendary as the movies themselves – Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Chris Wedge, Queen Latifah, Seann William Scott, Simon Pegg, and more. There are even some newer folks added to the cast, like Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Adam DeVine, Peter Dinklage, Aziz Ansari, Rebel Wilson, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Nick Offerman, and plenty others.
