I can’t get enough of CGI films. I love ’em, almost as much as I love traditionally 2D animated experiences. And while I am growing kind of sick and tired of every single film out there using the “Stay true to yourself” theme of constant self-discovery, I’m a sucker for the visuals.
And the next CGI film that I’m looking forward to, happens to star a fighting Irishman, sexy pair of legs and a Jackass. It’s called Epic, by the way.
20th Century Fox has been working on this for quite a while, and not just endless Ice Age sequels it seems, as Blue Sky Studios, has been collaborating since 2006 to bring the William Joyce story, The leaf men and the brave good bugs, to life.
Based on a tale that sees a young girl caught up in a battle between secret worlds, deep in the forest. So far, the project boasts an incredible line up of voices that includes;
- Colin Farrell
- Beyoncé Knowles
- Josh Hutcherson
- Amanda Seyfried
- Johnny Knoxville
- Aziz Ansari
- Jason Sudeikis
- Judah Friedlander
- Steven Tyler
Epic is currently scheduled for release next year in May. Yay, more animated bugs!
