Beyoncé Leads Cast of Animated Film ‘Epic’

Beyoncé

Beyoncé has tried her hand at drama, comedy, and musicals, and now she’s set to star in her first animated feature. The singer-actress will lend her voice to the 3D CG-animated film Epic.

According to Deadline.com, Beyoncé will play Queen Tara in 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios’ Epic, which is being developed by the makers of Ice Age and Rio.

In addition to B, the movie stars Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, and Judah Friedlander.

Directed by Ice Age’s Chris Wedge, Epic follows a battle in the forest between good and evil. A teenage girl magically transports into a secret universe, where she and a cast of fun and whimsical characters unite to save their world, which eventually saves the real world. It will be released to theaters on May 24, 2013.

The role is Beyoncé’s first since giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy in January. She is also set to star in Clint Eastwood’s remake of A Star Is Born.

    She’s not a great actress. I’m over these vanity projects. Voice wise, she can’t shake her accent if she tried. I don’t want to hear Beyonce, I want to hear the character.

    @DRB, I agree with you, i think if she took time to train as an actress she could learn to develop her character but i don’t think she wants to do the dirty work. I wanna see her do a crazy deep character that is nothing like her forcing her to come out of her comfort zone.

    @HeavyHeavy, Thank you. Just cause you disagree doesn’t mean you’re a “hater.”

    Hope she does GREAT!! I don’t get it, animated features are for performance artists (i.e. Whoopi Goldberg (Lion King), James Earl Jones (Star Wars, Lion King) and Eddie Murphy (Sherka).

    I don’t thing she has the voice for animated, but she will work hard. Congrats on steping out of the box.

    Stop,…just stop! Y’all need to stop playin’ y’all selves! Like, com’mon. Beyonce is a wonderful soul, and the fact that shes doing so much for this year and the next, shows me that I don’t think she gives two sh*ts on what u got to say,…positive OR negative. Now I remind u that she has a child now, let her feel happy. And besides, ain’t nobody say sh*t when she dragged her freaky a** at y’all local theatre! So STOP B***HIN’!!!!

    @Loiu2 dau refillz, Exactly what I’m saying. Nd when I said “she” I meant Rihanna for that last part. Lol not throwing shade. I think people should base their opinions on whether or not if she is an arrogant person. Not based on what she’s capable of. They need to stop shuting people down!
