See Beyonce as Queen Tara in Upcoming Animated Flick ‘Epic’
Beyonce is starring in her first animated feature film, ‘Epic,’ and now fans can get a sneak peek at what her character, Queen Tara, looks like.
A brand-new preview for the movie has surfaced, giving viewers a glimpse at the forthcoming 3D action-adventure film that is described as a reimagining of the classic tale ‘Thumbelina.’ Queen Tara makes a quick appearance in the clip, and while fans won’t be able to hear any of Bey’s lines, the video is still a fun look at what’s in store for the 2013 release.
‘Ice Age’ director Chris Wedge is at the helm of this film, which focuses on a teenage girl who joins forces with an eclectic mix of characters to help save the world. According to AOL Music, Wedge said Beyonce’s character acts as a Mother Nature figure, and “is the one sworn to protect the forest and is the source of its magic.”
‘Epic’ is based on William Joyce’s 1996 book ‘The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs,’ and is expected to arrive on May 24. In addition to Beyonce, the cast of ‘Epic’ includes Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Aziz Ansari and Steven Tyler.
