Fox has released the initial trailer from Blue Sky’s Epic (May 24, 2013), directed by Chris Wedge and based on William Joyce’s The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs. If you thought Rio was lush — this is takes vegetation to a whole other level of organic beauty combined with Blue Sky’s improved character animation from the exotic creatures to the humans.
Produced by Lori Forte (Ice Age: Continental Drift) and Jerry Davis (Robots), Epic features the voices of Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Blake Anderson, and Judah Friedlander.
Epic tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between good and evil. When a teenage girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters.
