Beyoncé on Tara 'Epic' role: "I've always wanted to be a queen"

By

Beyoncé has discussed her role in forthcoming animated movie Epic in a new behind-the-scenes video from the production.

The music superstar voices the character of Queen Tara, a Mother Nature-style ruler of the magical forest where the film takes place.

"What I like most about Tara is that she sets a great example for the people she protects," Beyoncé said. "I've always wanted to be a queen."

Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Pitbull, Steven Tyler, Aziz Ansari and Chris O'Dowd are also among the star-studded voice cast for the 20th Century Fox film.

Epic will be released in cinemas on May 22.
