Kidzworld reviews of this years most exhilarating animated adventure EPIC, now available on blu-ray and DVD!

From the creators of Ice Age, the year’s funniest, most exhilarating animated adventure EPIC which debuted on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, and DVD August 20th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Directed by Chris Wedge and featuring an amazing voice cast including Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Pitbull, and Beyoncé, the blockbuster film comes home just in time to help families become one with nature and end the summer in Epic style.

Transported to a magical world, a teenager (Amanda Seyfried) is recruited by a nature spirit, Queen Tara (Beyoncé Knowles), to help the “Leafmen” save their existence – and ours – from evil warriors. The whole family will love this fast-paced thrill-ride, with its astonishing animation and all-star voice cast that includes Colin Farrell, Oscar® Winner Christoph Waltz, and Steven Tyler!

Every Blu-ray and DVD comes with the Epic Coloring and Storybook Builder app. The app will allow kids to create their own Epic story and share it with family and friends.

The Bottom Line

For those of you who wanted to see something other than the usual bang-em-up blockbusters this summer, EPIC delivered, although funnily enough the movie isn't all that epic at all! It's really about getting down to ground level, and thinking about the world beneath our feet. A charming tale that takes viewers through a lush fantasy land, you'll be able to relive the magic in crisp blu-ray definition. There's no denying that EPIC features fantasic voice talent, and incredible animation and the special features take you behind-the-magic so can you see how this fantasy world was created from scratch. What EPIC lacked in punch, it made up for visually, and the Blu-ray Combo pack's extras make it extra enticing to add to your collection.
