From the creators of Ice Age comes the year’s funniest, most exhilarating animated adventure! 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 forest from evil warriors. The whole family will love this fast-paced thrill-ride, with its astonishing animation and an all-star voice cast that includes Colin Farrell, Oscar® Winner Christoph Waltz and Steven Tyler!
Ronin is the chisel-faced, battle-hardened leader of the Leafmen, the elite corps of warriors sworn to protect all life in the forest. He lives by the creed: “many leaves, one tree” and wouldn’t think twice about putting his own life on the line for someone he cares about. When the forest and his beloved Queen come under siege, Ronin rallies the Leafmen into action with his bravery and wry humor.
A quirky, absent-minded professor, Bomba has grown out of touch with his now teenage daughter, MK. He lives in the middle of the forest, in a rundown house, where he surrounds himself with bizarre homemade gadgets. His life has been dedicated to – some would say obsessed with – studying –a civilization of tiny people he’s never seen. But when MK disappears, Bomba must put his own dreams under the microscope, and find what he’s really always been looking for.
Rakish and handsome, Nod is all about bucking the rules and flying solo. But his brazen individualism doesn't square with the Leafmen’s ideals of teamwork and unity, so he quits the squad. After a teenage girl enters his world – and when the stakes are high – Nod discovers what it takes to be a true hero.
Mary Katherine (MK)
Mary Katherine (she prefers “MK”) is a smart, spirited and headstrong 17-year-old who finds herself on the journey of a lifetime. After returning to her childhood home to connect with her estranged father, MK loses patience with his endless stories of the “tiny people” who live in the woods. But when she is magically transported into the Leafmen’s world, she gains a new perspective. To find her way home, MK must do more than believe in this world; she’ll have to help save it.
Mub & Grub
Low on the evolutionary food chain, but high in self-esteem, Mub, a self-characterized “ladies’ man,” and Grub, a wannabe Leafman, are the caretakers of the royal pod that will bloom into the future Queen or King of the forest. Though this slug-and-snail comedy duo is spineless, literally, they show real backbone by joining the quest to save their world.
At first glance, Nim Galuu is the consummate party animal. But don’t let this larger than life caterpillar fool you – his wisdom and practical know-how make him a key behind-the-scenes player in the epic battle to save the forest.
Beautiful, agile and strong, Tara isn’t just the Leafmen’s Queen; she’s the life force of the forest, which she presides over with respect, compassion and humor. When Tara finds herself in danger, her unique connection with nature gives her powerful allies. And when all hope seems lost, she summons help from the most surprising of places.
A tough-guy toad, Bufo is a wheeler and dealer who plays all the angles: he profits no matter which side wins or loses.

Mandrake is tired of hiding in the shadows, and with his son by his side, he plans the ultimate revenge – to claim the forest he believes should have always been his.

...with a dash of a few other movie flavors thrown in.
The only thing I didn't like was the use of the crows and the bats as evil characters. The Boggins represent disease or virus, things that infect and destroy the ecosystem. Bats and crows are both species that help to keep disease in check. Bats control insect population and other species of bats are integral to pollination. Crows are the garbage disposals, and help to clean disease carrying carion from the environment. Aside from that, it was a fun movie that will likely get watched many times.
The characters were a lot of fun for the kids, and they like the music a lot too. The animation was very good, and very creative. There is a lot going for this movie like humor, action, and love. Which makes it easy for us dads to sit through it during movie time!
Personally, I don't know where the name "Epic" comes from for this movie. It's really great, but I don't think me or my kids would call it Epic. I'm not going to take a star off for it, but it's always kind of been a head scratcher for me.
My problem, as I recall, is that I have essentially seen it before (/Fern Gully/, of course).
Of course, simply seeing a new version of something else is not necessarily a bad thing, and it isn't actually a bad thing here, it just makes it appear ordinary to me rather than extraordinary.
Of course, that amounts to saying that the story was not particularly impressive -- to me. Again, the kids should enjoy it.
Thank you for the enjoyable evening together with my kids, old and young!
