Beyonce may be remaining low key with her career this year, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been making moves behind the scenes!
The 30-year-old singing sensation is lending her voice to the animation movie Epic, and we finally have a first look at her character Queen Tara! Dressed in a green dress, Queen Tara’s character will give Bey an opportunity to show off her voice-over skills.
The story is based around the 1996 books, The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs, which represent the fight between good and evil.
Josh Hutcherson even spoke to USA Today about his excitement for his role, telling them:
“I thought it would be cool to be in on the ground floor of an animated film over the course of several months.”
“You have more creative control over the character than in a live-action film. I was surprised by how much freedom I was given.”
After a teaser was released last summer, many critics believed that it might be too similar to Disney classics such as A Bug’s Life.
Director Chris Wedge assures us in USA Today that this is not true:
“I hate to associate it with other movies. It is adventure on the scale of Star Wars. And it does immerse the audience completely in a world like Avatar. But it has its own personality.”
Sounds like this really is going to be epic, especially for the Beyhive!
