This is going to be Epic (Literally)

2012 has seen its fair share of blockbusters. I’m pretty sure that many of you will be adding some of 2012’s best films to your DVD collection in the next year.

Folks, consider getting more DVD storage space though because it looks like 2013 is going to be a great year at the box office as well. Not only is the sequel to the 2010 film ‘Despicable Me’ and the prequel to the 2001 film ‘Monsters, Inc’ coming out – something truly “Epic” is coming in May 2013 as well.

Yes folks, the title of the upcoming Dreamworks animated feature is “Epic”. It’s basically about a teenager who finds herself transported to a deep forest world. In this world a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She ends up banding together with a patchwork band of characters in order to save the deep forest world and ours.

“Epic” is being labeled as an animated fantasy-adventure comedy film. The film is actually based on William Joyce’s children’s book entitled “The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs” (which was published in 1996).

“Epic” will feature the voice talents of Beyoncé Knowles, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis and Steven Tyler. The film’s screenplay is written by Dan Shere and it’s directed by Chris Wedge (who also directed 2005’s “Robots” and 2002’s “Ice Age”).  “Epic” is expected to be released on the 24th of May 2013 in the United States. No release date has been indicated for South African audiences yet.
