Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler is among the voices cast for a new animated film entitled “Epic.”
The flick, by Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, is a 3D CG action-adventure comedy that reveals a hidden world unlike any other. From the creators of "Ice Age" and "Rio", "Epic" tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and the forces of evil. When a teenage 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.
Beyoncé Knowles voices Queen Tara; Colin Farrell ("Total Recall") is Ronin; Josh Hutcherson ("The Hunger Games") is Nod; Amanda Seyfried ("Dear John") portrays Mary Katherine; and Johnny Knoxville ("Jackass") voices Mandrake.
Aziz Ansari ("Parks and Recreation") portrays Mub; and rapper Pitbull voices Bufo. Jason Sudeikis ("Horrible Bosses") portrays Bomba; and Aerosmith rock legend and American Idol judge Steven Tyler is Nim Galuu.
Co-starring are Blake Anderson ("Workaholics") as Dagda, and Judah Friedlander ("30 Rock") as Larry.
"Epic" hits theaters May 24, 2013.
The film is directed by Academy Award winner Chris Wedge, and produced by Lori Forte ("Ice Age: Continental Drift") and Jerry Davis ("Robots").
