  1. If this “Ice Age” spinoffs is dedicated to Buck the weasel, I hope so much that it will show how Buck found himself in the world of dinosaurs, what happened to him after his first meeting with Rudy as when he’s gone crazy, that there will be most of the music in the movie “Ice Age” of 2002:
    Opening Travel Music, Angered Rhinos, Humans / Diego, Going For Baby Tigers, Dodos, Fighting Over the Melons, Walking Through, Baby’s Wild Ride, Checking Out the Cave, Running From the Lava, Baby Walks, Tigers Try to Get Baby, Giving Back the Baby, Send Me On My Way;
    and that the series will also take place after the fifth “Ice Age” where we find the characters from this film as well as those of previous ones: the humans: the return of Nadia the mother of Roshan, Runar the father of Roshan, Roshan, the tigers with the teeth of saber: Zeke, Oscar, Lenny, maybe Soto having survived his wounds, the rhinos: Carl and Frank, the dodos, lazy: Jennifer and Rachel, the family of Sid: Zak, Marshall, Bertie, uncle Fungus, Milton, Sid’s father, Eunice, the mother of Sid; Mama Dino and her 3 babies, Roger, Gavin and Gertie, and Rudy (where there could be a similar fight to the t-rex and Blue vs. the indominus rex in Jurassic World but not only to but not least to jigsaw and bites) where the latter could end up catching and swallowing by Precious (like the catching mosasaur and killing the indominus rex in Jurassic World), and the worlds seen in the first Ice Age.
