Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

After reading this post at another WordPress blog I discovered that the popular Ice Age movies are not done.  A third Ice Age movie is being made called “Dawn of the Dinosaurs”.  The movie’s official site may be found here.

If you recall from the previous two films (rather cute, I must say), the characters include woolly mammoths, sabretooth tigers, sabretooth squirrels, and so on.  There are some historical errors (animals that should have been extinct in the movie, animals that never lived in the same areas, etc) in the first two films.

As you may suspect from the title of the upcoming film, it will include all of the previous lovable characters plus…dinosaurs!

Ok, you may think, what’s the big deal?  Well, it’s not a BIG deal, I suppose.  It is just a film, after all.  But it is a teeny irksome that the film depicts dinosaurs living in the same era as the last ice age.  After all, dinosaurs died out about 65 million years ago.

Oh well.  Just more misconceptions teachers and parents will have to make sure to address when their kids bring it up.  🙂

Here is the trailer for the upcoming movie:

  1. Thanks for the link.

    It’s good to know that I’m not alone in finding this movie annoying. My daughters, imminently sensible children, assure me that it’s just a movie and they want to see it anyway.

    Of course, they’ll tell all their friends the truth about when dinosaurs lived.
