Blue Sky Studio’s ‘Epic’ is an animation set on the forest floor. A cross between Honey I shrunk the Kids and FernGully, it’s a story of the battle between the forces of good and evil, leaf men and tiny sharks?
Epic is based on William Joyce’s children’s book, The Leaf Men. The Film was originally entitled The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs, or possible just Leafmen but Fox has given the forest floor amination the title Epic instead, to describe the scale of the film. From the trailer, it looks like the film will be a beautiful, well crafted visual treat.
“A teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and evil rages on. She bands together with a rag-tag group characters in order to save their world — and ours.”
Epic is directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots). The voice cast includes Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Beyoncé Knowles, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis, Pitbull, Steven Tyler and Judah Friedlander.
Epic’s journey to the big screen will see it arrive on 24th May 2013 for the UK and 17th May 2013 for USA.
