Beyoncé Talks Role in Animated Film ‘Epic’

As Beyonce continues to prepare for her world tour, she gives fans an insider look at her latest film project, Epic. In her first animated role, Mrs. Carter plays CGI-generated Mother Nature-like character Queen Tara, who is “the one sworn to protect the forest and is the source of its magic.”

In a new promo video, Queen B dishes on why she wanted the role saying, “I’ve always imagined being in an animated film. I’ve always wanted to be a queen.” Her calming voice and nurturing character are central to the film’s plot, which involves big action and dynamic characters. “This is one time where the movie really lives up to its title,” she says.

The film hits theaters on May 24.
