Chris Wedge, known for directing the first Ice Age and Robots, trains his sight and animated talent on the natural world of today, shrinking things down, but still uncovering the mythic and the Epic. Mary (Amanda Seyfried), a teenager with a scientist father, embarks on a very big adventure that forces her to choose sides in a battle of good versus evil in an enchanted forest.
With vocal support from Josh Hutcherson, Beyoncé Knowles, Colin Farrell and Aziz Ansari, this family-friendly fare seeks to attract a few more tweens into the great indoors for a couple of hours. Now in theaters. (PG) Not screened in time for review
