I haven’t seen a good animated film since last year’s Brave, but this year’s crop of animated productions will have to go a long way to equal Writer/Director Chris Wedge’s amazing Epic.


The charming Father/Daughter-relationship story deals with the beauty of nature facing destruction.  It has aspects of a mini-Avatar, dealing with the little creatures that keep the Earth fertile and green and fight against those who wish to blight it.  The voices of Amanda Seyfried as the heroine M.K. and Christoph Waltz as the villain Mandrake head a great cast of characters.
This wonderful work will appeal to audiences from 8 to 88.   Actually, those above and below those ages will love it, too.

Blue Sky Studio’s 3D animation is spectacular and should impress even those who normally shy from “cartoons.”
 I give Epic a 5 out of 5.  Go see it!
