Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios have announced the all-star voice cast for their new 3D CG action-adventure comedy, Epic. The film, from the creators of Ice Age and Rio, will feature Beyonce, Aziz Ansari, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried and Johnny Knoxville. The story tells of a hidden land deep in the forest where the battle between the forces of good and evil continues under our very noses. A teenage girl is magically transported into their secret universe where she must combine forces with an assortment of colorful characters in order to save both worlds. In addition to the stellar voices behind the characters, Epic will be directed by Chris Wedge who won an Academy Award for his 1999 short, Bunny and co-director of 2002’s Oscar-nominated Ice Age. Epic will transport into theaters May 24, 2013. Hit the jump for more.
In Epic, the new 3D CG action-adventure comedy (which is my favorite genre), Beyonce (A Star is Born) will voice Queen Tara, while Farrell (Total Recall) stars as Ronin, Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) as Nod and Seyfried (In Time) as the presumed protagonist, Mary Katherine. Ansari (Parks and Recreation) stars as Mub and Knoxville (iJackass) as Mandrake.
