The makers of Rio & Ice Age have announced that Beyonce will provide the voice of Queen Tara in the upcoming CGI movie Epic. The official word is that Epic tells the story of a teenage girl who is transported to a secret universe, where she finds herself smack dab in the middle of a battle between the forces of good and evil. As MTV reports, she joins up with “a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters” to save the world – naturally.
It looks like Beyonce’s maternity leave is officially over. This latest role is the first to be confirmed since the pop diva took time off to mother Blue Ivy. It’s rumored that she may star in Clint Eastwood’s remake of A Star is Born with Tom Cruise.
Beyonce rounds out a high-profile cast, which includes Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried & Jason Sudeikis. The upcoming Epicfilm is expected to be hit theaters on May 24, 2013.
