Having been on the scene for years, it’s only until now children’s book author William Joyce has hit the Hollywood jackpot. Not only did THE FANTASTIC FLYING BOOKS OF MR. MORRIS LESSMOORE win an Academy Award (and a rave review from me) earlier this year, but RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is earning some fantastic critcal reviews. Now, 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Animation have debuted the full trailer for EPIC based on Joyce’s children’s book The Leaf Men. Showcasing awesome and breathtakingly gorgeousness animation, you’ll want to mark your calendars for this one.
And speaking of talented, they’ve assembled some star packed power with Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Beyoncé Knowles, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis, Pitbull, Steven Tyler, and Judah Friedlander all lending their vocal skills. We think you’ll agree Blue Sky Animation has really outdone themselves with this one. Take a look at the trailer below and share your thoughts. We dig the use of Snow Patrol’s “The Lightning Strike” in this trailer too.
EPIC debuts in theaters in 3D on May 24th, 2013.
