With the addition of Blue Ivy to the Knowles-Carter clan, new mommy Beyonce is gearing up for a more family-friendly acting role in 20th Century Fox’s Epic.
According to Deadline, the Queen Bey will star as Queen Tara in the 3D CG-animated film described as “a battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and evil.”
The plot goes on to say, “When a teenaged girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters to save that world, which in turn saves the real world.
Beyonce will be joined by an all-star cast that includes Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, rapper Pitbull, Aerorsmith frontman Steven Tyler and more.
Epic is scheduled to be released May 24, 2013.
The singer turned actress is also set to star in Clint Eastwood‘s remake of A Star Is Born, a project she took on before her pregnancy was announced.
