Epic cover

The new 20th Century-Fox Blue Sky film Epic opens May 24th and for those who can't wait - and I'm one of them -  the fine folks at Titan Books sent along a few images from The Art of Epic, their new behind-the-scenes art book,  which happens to go on sale today. 

From 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, the creators of Ice Age and RioEpic 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.
