‘Epic’ Trailer: Yeah, But Is It Really That Epic?

20th Century Fox

The first full trailer for the upcoming animated adventure ‘Epic‘ has arrived, and we’re starting to think that title seems a bit hyperbolic. Unless it’s one of those ironic titles. It’s probably one of those.

‘Epic’ is like ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ meets ‘Fern Gully.’ A teenage girl whose dad is apparently Bill Nye the Science Guy gets shrunk down to miniature size and goes on an adventure with nature. Leaves are people! Slugs talk and sound like Aziz Ansari! Flowers are people! Everything is alive and looks like a person! So basically what we’ve learned from this trailer is that if you go for a walk outside, you’re killing everything. When you absent-mindedly snap a twig, you probably just broke the neck of someone’s aunt.

The film stars the voice talents of Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Judah Friedlander, Beyonce Knowles (okay), Steven Tyler (okay…), and Pitbull (wait, what?).

‘Epic’ comes from 20th Century Fox, the studio that brought you ‘Ice Age’ and ‘Rio.’ The first teaser didn’t do much for us, and this full trailer isn’t really igniting a spark, either. Also, they seem really into the song from the trailer because they also used it in the teaser. Get a new song, guys.
