Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade is an Easter special that includes new characters voiced by Gabriel Iglesias, Taraji P. Henson, Wendy Williams, Lili Estefan, Blake Anderson and Seth Green as a returning villain.


The special centers on a harried prehistoric bird mom Ethel (Taraji P. Henson) who entrusts her precious, soon-to-hatch egg to Sid. When she recommends him to her neighbors – a condor mom (Wendy Williams), Cholly Bear (Gabriel Iglesias) and Gladys Glypto (Lili Estefan) – business booms at his new egg-sitting service.

However, dastardly pirate bunny Squint (Seth Green), who is seeking revenge on the herd, steals, camouflages and hides all the eggs. Once again, with Squint’s twin brother, Clint (Blake Anderson), assisting, Manny, Diego and the rest of the gang come to the rescue and take off on a daring mission that turns into the world’s first Easter egg hunt.

The Easter-centric half-hour will air on Palm Sunday, March 20, at 7:30 p.m. and lead into Fox's biblical musical The Passion, which will air live from New Orleans. The special will also be available on Digital HD the day after broadcast at iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, Amazon Video, Sony Playstation Store, Microsoft Movies & TV and MGo the day after it premieres.
