Beyoncé Speaks On Role In New Film Epic

Beyoncé has opened up about the role she voiced in the upcoming animated feature Epic. Lady Bey lent her voice to the character of Queen Tara and, in a new promo video for the film, she says she's thrilled for fans to see the movie.

"I've always imagined being in an animated film. I've always wanted to be a queen," said B.

"Queen Tara is very important in Epic. She's preserved the beauty of her natural world and the safety of her people. Everything in this movie is big-the action, the characters. This is one time where the film really lives up to its title."

Epic, which co-stars Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell, and Aziz Ansari, details the struggle between the forces of good and evil in a forest. It is scheduled to hit theaters on May 24.
