Check out this trailer for the 2013 animated feature Epic which premiered yesterday on the internet:
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 film stars BEYONCÉ KNOWLES, COLIN FARRELL, JOSH HUTCHERSON, AMANDA SEYFRIED, and JOHNNY KNOXVILLE. EPIC is scheduled for release on May 24th, 2013.
I am generally not a person who thrives off of the latest in 3D/CGI/Animated features, having seen most only in passing, when my nieces and nephew are around. Having seen Rio, I must admit that Epic seems quite similar in look and feel to that feature. Which is totally understandable I suppose since it is from the same studio.
One item of interest is the voice casting. When I first saw the press information, I had a moment of “WTH?”
And wow! 2013 seems quite a ways off …
So, what is your reaction to this trailer?
