Young Money superstars Drake and Nicki Minaj will make their film debuts as prehistoric elephants in the upcoming flick ‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.’ Elephants? Let us explain. Drizzy and the Harajuku Barbie are the voices of two Mammoths named Ethan and Steffie, respectively, in the animated kids movie.
NYMag posted images of their ginormous yet cuddly characters in the flick. Drake (pictured, above) is Ethan with the spike-y mullet who is holding a bowl of porridge. Meanwhile, Minaj looks sort of plain as Steffi the Mammoth (pictured, below). She has on purple eye shadow and wears a purple flower behind her ears. Shouldn’t the colors be pink since Minaj is voicing her, after all?
Drake and Minaj are featured very briefly in the trailer — don’t blink or else you’ll miss them. We will probably see more extended clips of them very soon as we get closer to the movie’s release date. ‘Ice Age 4′ features the voice talents of Ray Romano, Jennifer Lopez, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo and Seann William Scott.
From the looks of the trailer, the movie should keep the Barbz and Drake fans cool for the summer.
‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift’ (in 3D!) opens in theaters on July 13.
