Hollywoodnews.com: “Ice Age” fans are in for a treat if and when they check out Jack Black’s “Gulliver’s Travels” in theaters over the holidays.

That’s because the original short film “Scrat’s Continental Crack-Up” will be attached to prints of “Travels,” and will star the infamous squirrel chasing after his elusive acorn in 3D.

More from an official release:

The special holiday treat sees Scrat still scrambling after the cursed acorn he’s been craving since the first ‘Ice Age’ film. Only this time, the chase has world-changing consequences. Forget what you’ve learned in geology about the continents forming as a result of massive tectonic shifts and volcanic eruptions tearing land masses apart. SCRAT’S CONTINENTAL CRACK-UP reveals that these seismic…crack-ups…came about from Scrat’s nutty misadventures.

The short film serves as a tease for a fourthg “Ice Age” movie, titled “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” which arrives in theaters on July 13, 2012. The story, also presentedi n 3D, picks up after Scrat’s continental cataclysm, which triggers the greatest adventure of all for “Ice Age’s” intrepid trio — Manny, Diego, and Sid.

As for 20th Century Fox’s “Gulliver’s Travels,” it arrives in theaters everywhere Dec. 25.
