Beyonce to Lend Voice to Animated Movie

Posted by Adam

BEYONCE Knowles has landed another movie role.

The singer — who is mom to four-month-old daughter Blue Ivy — 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.

This will be Beyonce’s first film role following the January 7 birth of her and Jay-Z’s daughter; the Grammy winner, 30, is also slated to star in Clint Eastwood‘s remake of A Star Is Born.

Beyonce recently revealed she has lost 60 pounds since giving birth.

“Y’all have no idea how hard I worked!” the 30-year-old exclaimed to her fans during her concert at Revel Beach’s Ovation Hall Saturday night.

“I had to lose 60 pounds. They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!

“Now tonight I’m gonna get chocolate wasted!”
