What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Epic is an animated adventure from the same studio behind the Ice Age franchise and Rio. Part eco-friendly tale and part tiny-creatures story, Epic (which was inspired by the characters in William Joyce's children's book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs) centers on a teen girl who's magically shrunk into the world of miniscule armed archers called Leafmen who protect the forest from evil. There's a central good vs. evil theme, as well as a parent vs. adolescent storyline that should appeal to kids, but know that there are definitely battles and even a small body count (mostly due to arrows). The main villain is merciless and believes that it's his mission to destroy the forest and rule over a rotting wasteland. In addition to the violence, there's a romantic nature to two relationships in the movie, as well as several flirty (and snotty) jokes courtesy of a slug voiced by Aziz Ansari. Expect some insult language ("stupid," "idiot," etc.).
