Another trailer has been released for Blue Sky's CG animated adventure Epic, which 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." This is very much an environmentally inspired film. The animation and and character designs are pretty cool looking, but I just don't find the story interesting.
The film is based on William Joyce's 1996 book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs. It was directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age) and has a solid cast of voice actors that include Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Blake Anderson and Judah Friedlander.
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.
The movie will be released on May 24th 2013. Check out the latest trailer!
