Twen­ti­eth Cen­tury Fox Ani­ma­tion and Blue Sky Stu­dios announced the voice cast for Epic, a new 3D CG action-adventure com­edy that reveals a hid­den world unlike any other. From the cre­ators of the Ice Age series and the very pop­u­lar fea­ture film RioEpic 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.

This new fea­ture will be directed by Chris Wedge and pro­duced by Lori Forte and Jerry Davis. Here’s a the voice cast and the char­ac­ters they will be portraying:

Bey­oncé Knowles (Queen Tara)
Colin Far­rell (Ronin)
Josh Hutch­er­son (Nod)
Amanda Seyfried (Mary Kather­ine)
Johnny Knoxville (Man­drake)
Aziz Ansari (Mub)
Pit­bull (Bufo)
Jason Sudeikis (Bomba)
Steven Tyler (Nim Galuu)
Blake Ander­son (Dagda)
Judah Fried­lan­der (Larry)

No pro­duc­tion images, or any art­work from the film yet.

The announce­ment also put the release date as May 24, 2013, which means this film has been in pro­duc­tion for a while. It also means the pre­vi­ously announced Leaf­men- which was also slated for a May 24, 2013 release– is either pushed back or cancelled.
