The film centres on a teen girl Mary Katherine (voiced by Amanda Seyfried) who unwittingly enters the mystic forest land and discovers its best-kept secrets. A scientist of some sort, Mary’s father believes that creatures named Leaf Men are out there in the forest, all around us, watching over us, and protecting us!
However, the daughter rubbishes this, saying she does not believe in such stories since she has never seen the so-called Leaf Men. Although, later, after catching a shiny leaf falling from above, Mary Katherine turns tiny and meets the Leaf Men, the protectors of the forest.
Sadly though, she enters this mystic land at the wrong time; the forest is in danger and she cannot run away now since the destruction of forest does not only mean the end of the Leaf Men’s life, but also humans’.
The Queen of the forest (Beyonce) believes Mary is there, inside the forest, for a reason and the connection will perhaps be clear later on. For now, catch the trailer of Epic below and some stills on the following pages.
