The Ice Age movies have never really been about historical or scientific accuracy, and even most religious people can agree that the Bible doesn’t say anything about wooly mammoths that talk like Ray Romano. For Ice Age: Collision Course, though, the good people at 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have decided to completely abandon any semblance of reality. This time around, they’ve thrown in aliens (or at least the existence of aliens), Scrat the sabre-toothed squirrel going into space and literally creating our solar system, and a bunch of space debris that will almost certainly destroy the Earth and kill every single talking animal that lives on it. Basically, shit’s going to get real in Ice Age: Collision Course.

Also, Neil deGrasse Tyson apparently does a voice in the movie, so despite everything we just said, it will be 100 percent scientifically accurate. Otherwise, he’ll just end up complaining about it on Twitter. Ice Age: Collision Course will be in theaters on July 22, 2016.
