Beyonce is making her big-screen comeback in the forthcoming animated movie 'Epic', produced by 20th Century Fox. The 30-year-old R&B superstar has signed on to voice the character of 'Queen Tara', reports CNN.
The singer is certainly in high profile company, with Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler and Josh Hutcherson also signed on for the project. 'Epic' is helmed by the 'Ice Age' director Chris Wedge and follows the story of a teenage girl who - after finding herself magically dropped into a secret universe - teams up with a unique group of characters to help save the world. Fans of Beyonce will have to wait a little while for 'Epic' though - the animated movie is slated to arrive in theaters on May 24, 2013.
In fact, the singer will first star in Clint Eastwood's remake of 'A Star is Born', with Tom Cruise, about a movie star who helps a young singer find fame, even as alcoholism takes his own career off course. Beyonce returned to the stage this past weekend, performing a series of concerts at Atlantic City as part of the Memorial Weekend celebrations.
