A new trailer for Epic, an animated film that follows the secret lives of forest beings protecting their sacred land from a force that seeks to destroy it, has been released.
A teenage girl spending time at a relative’s house gets shrunken down to their size and joins the forces of the forest dwellers to help them save the forest world and her world as well. Sure it may sound like a revamped version of Ferngully, but Epic doesn’t look like anything the Blue Sky has done before. The studio also worked on the Ice Age franchise and RIO.
Check out the latest trailer below.
The first trailer didn’t feature much about the plot and instead decided to focus on the beauty of the animated forest. This new trailer gives us a few details about the plot and expands on the surrounding environment. So far everything looks great, but we’ll see if it all holds up when the film comes out next summer.
Featuring the voices of Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Beyonce Knowles, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Aziz Ansari, Blake Anderson, and Judah Friedlander. Directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age), Epic is based on a children’s novel of the same name. 20th Century Fox will release Epic in 3D on May 24, 2013.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
