Beyonce's honey-toned voice is central to the upcoming animated flick 'Epic,' and she couldn't be more excited about it. "I've always imagined being in an animated film," Beyonce said. "I've always wanted to be a queen."

Excuse us, but she is -- they don't call her Queen Bey for nothing! But Queen Tara is her own breed, which Bey explains. "Queen Tara is important in 'Epic,'" Beyonce said earnestly. "She has preserved the natural beauty of her world and the safety of her people." Considering how protective Beyonce is of her daughter, Blue Ivy, and even of her nephew (Solange's son), Daniel Julez Smith, Jr., this role sounds perfect for her.

As for the movie itself, Beyonce couldn't be more excited about it. "Everything about this movie is big," she grinned. "The action, the characters -- this is one time where the movie really lives up to its title."

The clip closes with a side-by-side shot of Bey recording her voiceover and Queen Tara actually mouthing her words. Cute!

'Epic' hits theaters May 24.
