Are you dying to know the voices behind "Epic," the upcoming 3D animated movie about the bug-size battle of good vs evil? Well, this new trailer will actually help you out. Showcasing the star-studded voice cast with their animated characters, this preview gives us another fun look at Blue Sky founder and Ice Age producer Chris Wedge's first directed film since 2005's Robots.
"Epic," based on the children's book by acclaimed illustrator William Joyce (who also worked with Wedge on Robots), sees a magically shrunken human girl (Amanda Seyfried) who gets transported deep inside an enchanted forest, where a war is brewing between environment-protecting soldiers (Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell) and tree-munching creatures (Christoph Waltz). Also fighting on the good side are talking slugs, voiced by Aziz Ansari and Chris O'Dowd. Other notable voices include Jason Sudeikis as Seyfried's bumbling father, Pitbull as a trash-talking frog, Steven Tyler as a scroll-keeping worm, and Beyonce as (what else) the forest Queen Tara.
EPIC is a 3D CG action-adventure comedy that reveals a hidden world unlike any other. From the creators of ICE AGE and RIO, EPIC tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good who keep the natural world alive and the forces of evil who wish to destroy it. When a teen age girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters in order to save their world ... and ours.
Epic stars the voices of Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farrell, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Aziz Ansari, Chris O'Dowd, Judah Friedlander, Blake Anderson, Steven Tyler, Pitbull
