Beyonce to Star in Animated Film "Epic"

Four-month-old Blue Ivy is probably too young to appreciate most of mom Beyonce's projects. The singer's newest role, however, is something her whole family will be able to enjoy.

According to Deadline, the "Run the World (Girls)" chanteuse has signed on to voice the character of Queen Tara in the 3D, CG-animated movie Epic.

The film is being produced by 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios--the companies responsible for Ice Age and Rio-- and already boasts a star-studded cast. Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis and Steven Tyler have all reportedly signed on to appear in the flick, which hits theaters in May 2013.
