Movie News: Epic
Looking for a little adventure this weekend? Or should I say, a little adventure that turns into a really big one?
Epic is a new movie based on the book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs. It’s about a girl named Mary Katherine who is magically transported to a small, secret universe in the forest where a battle between good and evil is being fought. Before she has time to make sense of her tiny new size, Mary Katherine is flung into the battle. And she finds herself fighting alongside a group of warriors known as the Leafmen to save their world — and ours.
I got a chance to see this new movie last week, and here’s what I thought!
1. The animation is awesome. It’s one of the best-looking flicks I’ve seen in awhile! Check out the trailer below to see what I mean.
2. It’s funny. Mostly thanks to the movie’s main stars (in my opinion): Grub and Mub. The loveable snail and slug pals had me laughing pretty much non-stop.
3. It’s full of magic, wonder, and adventure. It better be with a title like “Epic”, right? And while it may not actually be the most epic movie you’ve ever seen, it’s still got all the fixings to make it a favourite.
Epic hits theatres today. If you go see it, come back to tell us what you think!
