A new trailer for the 20th Century Fox animated film Epic has been released. 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 by shrinking down to their size, where she must combine forces with an assortment of colorful characters in order to save both worlds. The pic still looks a little like Ferngully 2013, but I’m not entirely sure that’s a bad thing. There’s more humor in this trailer than in the first, and the “miniaturized” story device should provide for some fun set pieces in the forest.
Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. The film features the voices of Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Beyonce Knowles, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Aziz Ansari, Blake Anderson, and Judah Friedlander. Epic opens in 3D on May 24, 2013.
