This new offering from Blue Sky Studio promises to break new ground and be an audience pleaser. Set for release on May 24, critics have called it a cross between Avatar, Lord of the Rings and Gladiator.

According to the film’s director, Chris Wedge, the film is loosely based on William Joyce’s book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs. Set in a lush rain forest, the forces of ‘life’ battle the forces of ‘decay.’ While flashes of the humor for which Blue Sky films are known do crop up, the film has made an effort to tell a story with more depth than its previous family fare.

Check out the early preview of the film in AWN and the trailer and let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Epic.
