So what the heck is “Epic” all about? Apparently it’s about a secret forest world where there are tiny people and talking snails. Kinda like “Avatar”, I guess, except everyone is smaller, and greener, and there will probably be no tail-sex action. Which is disappointing, but hey, I’ll try to move on. Anyways. Check out the first trailer for “Epic”, which has quite the all-star voice cast. Josh Hutcherson of “The Hunger Games” fame is your star, along with a surprisingly fun sounding Amanda Seyfried. Usually I associate Seyfried with dark, uber serious roles, so this is an interesting change of pace for her.
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 and the forces of evil. 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 epic, well, CG movie also features the voices of Colin Farrell, Jason Sudeikis, Aziz Ansari, Beyoncé Knowles, Johnny Knoxville, Judah Friedlander, Steven Tyler, and Pitbull. Chris Wedge directs.
