Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the ice age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the woolly mammoths.
The Madagascar animals fly back to New York City, but crash-land on an African nature reserve, where they meet others of their own kind, and Alex especially discovers his royal heritage as prince of a lion pride.
When Gru, the world's most super-bad turned super-dad has been recruited by a team of officials to stop lethal muscle and a host of Gru's own, He has to fight back with new gadgetry, cars, and more minion madness.
Scrat's epic pursuit of his elusive acorn catapults him outside of Earth, where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the planet. To save themselves from peril, Manny, Sid, Diego, and the rest of the herd leave their home and embark on a quest full of thrills and spills, highs and lows, laughter and adventure while traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters.
Scrat's storyline parodies science fiction films such as Alien (1979), Prometheus (2012), and The Martian (2015). Though, it mainly spoofs Gravity (2013), with both films sharing the same music in their trailers and a reference of a character's death. See more »

Neil deBuck Weasel:
The universe: A vast expanse of space and matter. It includes all that we see, and all that we know. Since the beginning of time, we have wondered how the universe came to be. A gloriously orchestrated plan? A chance series of events? Or something much, much... dumber?

Just like the previous two films in the franchise, the acorn is shown right at the end of the credits, only to statically disappear like a glitch. See more »
From the first minute, it's clear that the writers are really desperate to bring out fresh ideas, but it just comes across as purely that; desperation. It borders on the ludicrous. My kid watched on silently, but I never heard her laugh once. Not good for a comedy. It's dull. It's ridiculous. It's way over the top, even for a animated kids film with talking mammoths. It's just plain stupid. This series has reached its end. I really hope it's over but I hear there's another in the works. While there's still a modicum of profit, the machine keeps churning. It's really sad, and an insult to the first few films, which were fun and fresh. Let it die. It's begging to be put down.
