Now that she's made her big stage comeback over Memorial Day weekend, Beyonce is ready to do the same on the big screen.
The 30-year-old singer/actress has signed on to star as “Queen Tara” in a new animated film called "Epic," produced by 20th Century Fox Animation.
She’ll be in excellent company, as the flick also features voice-overs by Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis and Steven Tyler.
“Epic,” helmed by “Ice Age” director Chris Wedge, is about a teen girl who, after finding herself magically dropped into a secret universe, teams up with a unique band of characters all tasked to help save the world.
The animated tale will arrive in theaters May 24, 2013.
The new mom is also expected to star in Clint Eastwood’s remake of “A Star Is Born," as previously reported.
