Taraji P. Henson is lending her voice to the Ice Age gang when Fox airs an Easter-themed special called Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade on March 20.

Sid, Manny, Diego, and Scrat are back and joined by new characters voiced by Henson, Seth Green, Wendy Williams, Gabriel Iglesias, Lili Estefan, and Blake Anderson.

In the half-hour special, Ethel (Henson) entrusts Sid (John Leguizamo) with her soon-to-hatch egg and recommends his services to her neighbors. When Sid starts a new egg-sitting business, pirate bunny Squint (Green) decides to seek revenge on Sid and his pals by stealing and hiding the eggs. Thus commences the world’s first Easter egg hunt.

The special will also feature a sneak peek of the next installment of the franchise, Ice Age: Collision Course, premiering in theaters July 22.

Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade airs Sunday, March 20, 7:30 p.m. ET before leading into Fox’s live musical event The Passion at 8 p.m. ET.
