Trapped on an island with talking chipmunks may seem like many people’s worst nightmare, but that’s exactly what Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked promises viewers.

The third installment in the series has the furry friends jumping ship (literally) and landing on a deserted island to fend for themselves.

The trailer promises the “greatest chipmunk adventure of all.” The trailer also previews plenty of puns and pop culture references, including the Willow Smith song “Whip My Hair,” a Lord of the Rings joke and even Titanic’s signature line.

The voice cast for the 20th Century Fox film features Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Amy Poehler, Anna Faris, Jesse McCartney and Christina Applegate, and Jason Lee, David Cross, and Jenny Slate will return for the live-action roles.
