Fox Animation Studios and Blue Sky Studios have officially green-lit Ice Age 5, slated for a July 15, 2016 release. This news should come as a surprise to, well, NO ONE, as films that reach Part 4 rarely adhere to such age-old adages as 'Leave well enough alone' and/or 'Less is more.'

In fact, in the case of the Ice Age films, more appears to actually mean more. LOTS MORE. With last year's Ice Age: Continental Drift earning $874.9 million worldwide (bringing the series' total haul to a whopping $2.8 billion), the 'end' that the films' characters continually fear appears less and less likely to occur any time soon.

The announcement of Ice Age 5 officially makes the summer of '16 the Summer of Studio Sequels, with Pixar releasing Finding Dory and DreamWorks releasing How to Train Your Dragon 3 -- BOTH on June 17.

Originality must've died with the dinosaurs.
