Beyoncé Lends Voice To Epic Movie Trailer

Beyoncé is one of the many celebs to lend a voice to the upcoming 20th Century Fox 3D animated flick, Epic. Bey plays a character named Queen Tara in the fantasy-adventure flick, a role for which she says she's well-suited.

"I've always imagined being in an animated film," she said. "I've always wanted to be a queen. Queen Tara is very important in Epic. She's preserved the beauty of her natural world and the safety of her people."

The film, according to the studio, "tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good who keep the natural world alive and the forces of evil who wish to destroy it."

Others set to lend their voices to the flick include Pitbull (who plays a frog named Bufo), Colin Farrell, Steven Tyler and Aziz Ansari.

Epic hits theaters on May 24.
