Fox and Blue Sky (via Jabadan) have released the trailer for
Fern Gully 2 Epic, the latest creation from the studio behind the Ice Age and Rio franchises. Props for starting a new franchise, rather than rehashing Ice Age for a fifth time, but this world looks a little too familiar for our tastes. Either way, the animation is gorgeous.
The official synopsis reads: Epic is a 3D CG action-adventure comedy that reveals a hidden world unlike any other. From the creators of Ice Age and Rio, Epic tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and the forces of evil. When a teen age girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters in order to save their world…and ours.
Epic is due for release on 24 May 2013. It will be released in Australia on 20 June 2013 from Fox.
