With the Walt Disney Company purchasing 20th Century Fox, Disney picked up lots of valuable franchises that could be used for its new streaming service and according to the latest rumor from Discussing Film, Blue Skies Studios are working on two new animated projects, one based on Rio and another on Ice Age.

They are saying that the Rio spinoff will focus on Nico and Pedro, who were played by Jamie Foxx and will.i.am, in the two movies.

While the ‘Ice Age’ spinoff will focus on the character, Buck, who was originally played by Simon Pegg and the character appeared in the last three Ice Age movies.

At the moment, very little is known about these spinoffs, such as if they will be a series or movie, and if the original actors will be returning.

Both of these franchises would be a perfect fit for Disney+ and so far, the previous movies haven’t yet been announced for Disney+, so they would make a good addition after the service launches.

Would you like to see new spinoffs of Rio and Ice Age?

    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 Ice Age 5 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.

    I could definitely see The Rio spin-off working quite well, as it would focus more on the music aspect of the IP. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was hoping for another 23 Rio Movies with Blue & Jewel though.

    I would LOVE to see a Rio 3; however, I was hoping to get more of Blu's background in the third film. I mean, why was he alone in a nest in the beginning of Rio? What happened to his parents? If Disney or Blue Sky decides to make a third film, please at least tell us Blu's story.
