Brand New Exclusive Concept Art from the Animated Adventure EpicS

Amanda Seyfried gets shrunk to tiny size and joins a race of strange little people as they fight against evil monsters, in the animated fantasy adventure Epic. This film is based on the children's book by William Joyce (Rise of the Guardians), and we've got some lush, fairy-tale-themed concept art from the film, exclusively at io9.

This art comes from the new book The Art of Epic, which comes out today from Titan Books. Here's how they describe the book:

From 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, the creators ofIce Age and Rio, Epic tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and the forces of evil. When a teenage girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters in order to save their world — and ours.

The Art of Epic shines a light on the previously hidden world of Epic, with over 300 pieces of concept art, character sketches, storyboards and digital paintings, along with interviews with the key animation talent.
