Beyonce Knowles, Josh Hutcherson Among Stars Lending Their Voices To Animated Feature 'Epic'

Josh-Hutcherson-Beyonce-Epic-Voiceover

Beyonce Knowles is ready to get back to the silver screen -- sort of.

Deadline is reporting that the 30-year-old singer will lead an all star cast in the upcoming animated feature, Epic. Though the 30-year-old "Love on Top" singer is not stranger to the big screen -- she's starred in films such as 2003's Goldmember and 2006's Dreamgirls -- this will be the first time she has voiced a character in an animated film.

Besides 19-year-old Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, who are some other stars who are attached to the project?

Horrible Bosses' Colin Farrell, Mean Girls actress Amanda Seyfried and, in an interesting twist, American Idol judge and Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler will all voice characters in the animated film which will hit theaters on May 24, 2013. What exactly is the movie all about? According to Deadline:

"It is described as a battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and evil. When a teenaged girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters to save that world, which in turn saves the real world."
Since giving birth to her first child with hubby Jay-Z, 42, in January -- the adorable little Blue Ivy -- BK has slowly been getting back to work. For instance, over the past weekend, Knowles performed her first post-baby concert in Atlantic City, N.J., where even first lady Michelle Obama attended!

Maybe now that Knowles is a mom, she wants to make something her 4-month-old daughter can enjoy? She wouldn't be the first celeb parent to do voice over work in an animated film. Check out more below.

Are you excited to (sort of) see her on the big screen again? Sound off in the comments!
