Beyoncé is a fairy queen in the first trailer for Epic

The first trailer for the woodland-warring-nymphs movie Epic is out. It looks like a North American Fern Gully. And the fairies ride hummingbirds, which is pretty adorable. The animated movie stars Peeta, Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell, Johnny Knoxville, Steven Tyler, Beyonce (as a fairy queen), and Aziz Ansari as a slug. How completely random:

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.


Epic will be in theaters May 17, 2013. Watch it in HD here.

I could do without the shitty hipster music (especially in the trailer for a movie called EPIC) that is not at all epic in any way.

The actual movie looks pretty crappy almost feels too little too late and not really the type of magic and look you'd expect. Look at the sequences in BRAVE that have to do with fairy lights, magic and majestic forests and the like...and it looks about a thousand times better than this does. Which is sad, cause the concept is interesting enough...but forest green armor and disguised lime green leaves, avatar/tarzan esque tree branch running/sliding...meh.
