Full-Length Trailer Suggests ‘Epic’ May or May Not Live up to its Name
Upcoming animated movie, Epic, started its life way back in 2006, when ‘Ice Age’ director Chris Wedge announced he would next make ‘Leaf Men’ based on the children’s book ‘The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs’ by William Joyce. It didn’t get the green-light until 2009, and now we’re seeing the finished project, now titled ‘Epic’, and, judging by this full-length trailer, it’s looking like a mixture of ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ and ‘Fern Gully’. It certainly looks lovely, but whether it can offer anything new remains to be seen.
Starring the voice talents of Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Colin Ferrell, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Aziz Ansari, Beyonce Knowles, Steven Tyler and Pitbull, ‘Epic’ will hit cinemas May 24, 2013.
