    I'm not saying this in a negative way, but it reminds me very much of Ferngully, Avatar and Arthur and the Invisibles mushed together.
    ...
    Which is actually a pretty cool concept. And the trailer is awesome.

    To be honest, I won't be surprised if Epic turns out to be an epic fail.

    Looks cool, but naming your movie "Epic," well, that takes some balls.

    Recognized Aziz's voice at the end there...

    I'm intrigued. This could be really cool or it could be like Delgo. The trailer looked pretty good except for the end.

    Pretty much. Even the main villain looks like some evil naavi.

    And they don't take the sexy, singing Tim Curry monster from Ferngully? Take everything from it except it's one redeeming feature.

    I kid, I kid. I mean it looks like a lark and the visual design is certainly cooler than Ferngully.

    lol i know a lot of people do not like ferngully, but i love it. *mainly due to tim curry* but still. :lol 

    i plan to see this movie this weekend, rather then seeing 'fast and the furious what ever number it is now" :lol 

    it looks fun.

    it will just make me want to watch ferngully at the end though. lol

    You want it all, but you can't have it.

    I took a chance on Epic. It was very predictable. The animation was stellar and it had a few funny moments, but that didn't make up for the flaws. There were plenty of throwaway characters, unfunny jokes, platitudes, and an absolutely wretched musical number.

    It also hosted an entire forest of rip-offs. Nod is the spitting image of Flynn Rider from Tangled. Seriously, just give him a beard and you have Flynn. And the queen reminded me a lot of Gaia from Captain Planet.

    It did take some elements from the first two. But it shamelessly ripped off Arthur and the Invisibles. I had fun counting all the plot points and design elements that they stole.
