Storyline

Young Mary Katherine (M.K.) returns to her eccentric scientist father's home, but his all-consuming quest to discover a tiny civilization in the neighboring forest drives them apart. However, M.K. soon finds herself shrunken down by Queen Tara of that forest who was mortally wounded by the putrefying Boggans, and charged to deliver a pod bearing the new Queen to safety. Together with a veteran Leafman warrior, two goofy mollusks and a young maverick, M.K. agrees to help. As the villainous Boggan leader, Mandrake closes in, M.K. and her new friends must draw on the best of themselves together and discover what they have to save their world.

User Reviews

An outstanding animation
23 June 2013 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This animation is about a teenage girl who goes to live with his father, who is a scientist fanatical about civilised creatures in the first, after his mother died.

"Epic" has everything to be a successful animation. It's colorful and delightful to watch. The characters are really nice (but only limited to the characters in the Queen's land). The story is very engaging, even though it seems to be a simple story of God versus evil. The father daughter relationship is presented beautifully, it makes me feel for both the father and the daughter as their relationship blossoms.

I think "Epic" is a really good animation. It touched me and entertained me, made me laugh and made me be filled with tears of joy. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
