Amanda Seyfried and Josh Hutcherson go on a slug hunt in hopes of saving the forest in this exclusive clip from Blue Sky's upcoming animated movie, "Epic."

"Epic" tells the story of an ongoing battle between the forces of good, who keep the natural world alive, and the forces of evil, who wish to destroy it. When a teenage girl (Amanda Seyfried) finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she teams up with an elite band of warriors and a crew of comical, larger-than-life figures, to save their world...and ours. The Leafmen characters featured in "Epic" are inspired by William Joyce's book "The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs," which introduced the Samurai-like warriors. The acclaimed author also co-wrote Epic's story and screenplay and serves as an executive producer and production designer.

In the clip above, the team goes on a search for the missing insects and their priceless bulb. Along with Seyfried, Hutcherson, and Colin Farrell, you'll hear the voices of Aziz Ansari and Oscar Winner Christoph Waltz as Mandrake, a villain looking to destroy the forest. Beyonce, Pitbull, Johnny Knoxville, and Jason Sudeikis also lend their voices to the film.

But wait, there's more!
