Beyonce Dishes On Her Role In The 3D Animated Film Epic: “I’ve Always Wanted To Be A Queen!”

She may have nicknamed herself King Bey. But, this summer, Beyonce will gladly be queen. The 31-year-old singer stars as Queen Tara, the ruler of the forest, in the forthcoming 3D animated picture Epic.

“Once I learned about my character, I just had to be apart of it,” Beyonce says in the new featurette from the film. “What I like most about Tara is that she sets a great example for the people that she protects.”

For the pop diva, who embarks on a world tour this month, the role in the CG action-adventure comedy is a dream come true. “I’ve always wanted to be a queen,” Beyonce says of the role. “The film is about how everything in our life connects. Everything in this movie is big…the characters, the actors, this is one time where the film really lives up to its title.”

From the makers of Ice Age, Epic is based on William Joyce‘s children’s book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs. Featuring the voices of Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Colin Farrell (Total Recall), and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained),  Epic hits theaters on May 24.
