Beyonce Knowles-Carter is moving full-steam ahead with her plans to dominate every aspect of the entertainment world in 2013. In addition to scoring the $50 million contract with Pepsi, performing the halftime show for the Superbowl, releasing her fifth studio album, and going on a worldwide tour, the wife-mother-mogul is also starring in the upcoming 20th Century Fox animated film Epic.
According to a press release from Fox:
EPIC 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 who keep the natural world alive and the forces of evil who wish to destroy it. When a teen age 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.
Beyonce lends her voice to Queen Tara, who is responsible for the beauty and safety of her people in the mythical world. Other famous voices starring in Epic include: Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Aziz Ansari , Pitbull and Aerosmith frontman/"American Idol" judge Steven Tyler.
Epic will be in theaters May 24.
