Ice Age 5 has finally found its official title but has moved its release date from July 15 to July 22, 2016. "Ice Age: Collision Course" is the title for the latest movie of the Blue Sky Studios' Ice Age film series; one of the biggest animated movie franchises on the planet.

Newly christened Ice Age 5 movie "Ice Age: Collision Course," has a new release date to go along with the new title. The planned release date was moved forward by a week. It now has a US bow scheduled for July 22, 2016. At the moment, it is set for unveiling in the UK the week before, on July 15th 2016.

This move was made to avoid the foreseen competition with Paul Feig's "Ghostbusters" reboot, Steve Quale's action-thriller film "The Lake," and Diane Kern's romantic drama and musical film "La La Land." For the time being, "Ice Age: Collision Course" is sharing its new date with one other title, Warner Bros' King Arthur.

Mike Thurmeier who co-directed the last two Ice Age films with Carlos Saldanha and Steve Martino respectively, will be co-directing this one with Galen T. Chu. "Ice Age: Collision Course" stands as the sequel to Steve Martino and Thurmeier's 2012 "Ice Age: Continental Drift." Michael Wilson is on board to pen the film script while Wedge, Lori Forte, and Carlos Saldanha will produce.

"Ice Age: Collision Course" will see the return of favorite characters, including Manfred (Manny), Ellie, Diego and Sid. It stars the voices of John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Keke Palmer, Quen Latifah, Ray Romano, Roshon Wana Sykes, Jay Leno, Chris Wedge, and Adam Young, among others. Additional characters and exact plot details for the upcoming film are yet to be announced.

Released in 2009, "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs," revolved around the tropical lost world that was inhabited by dinosaurs, while "Ice Age: Continental Drift," which came out in 2012, showed the characters getting trapped on a floating iceberg after the breakup of a continent. The two movies earned $886.7 million and $887.2 million worldwide, respectively.
