"Shrinking Heroes in Film" Feature with Epic Blu-Ray Movie Giveaway #EpicDay

This Giveaway is Closed

 I am sharing this feature and giveaway as a member of the Fox Home ENT Insiders Blogging Program. I am receiving a free Blu-Ray copy of Epic. No monetary compensation was received for this post. As always, any opinions expressed are my own. 


Shrinking Heroes With A Big Impact


Debuting on Blu-ray & DVD August 20 

 We typically think of heroes as being large, strong, and courageous. After going through a change in size these heroes may be miniature, but they are certainly brave! Here’s a look at our favorite characters from movie history that have been transformed into smaller versions of themselves.

From the creators of Ice Age, the year’s funniest, most exhilarating animated adventure comes home as EPIC debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, and DVD this August 20 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by Chris Wedge (The Ice Age Franchise) and featuring an amazing voice cast including Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Pitbull, and Beyoncé, the blockbuster film comes home just in time to help families become one with nature and end the summer in Epic style. 


Mary Katherine- Epic 


When Mary Katherine is transformed into a miniature version of herself and introduced to the magical world of Moonhaven she thinks that it is all a dream. Proving that she is much tougher than she looks, MK teams up with the Leafman warriors to help defend against the forces of evil. By the end of her epic journey, MK has not only saved Moonhaven, but our world as well! 


 Nick & Amy Szalinski- Honey, I Shrunk the Kids 


 Amy and Nick Szalinski were left to fend for themselves after their father, inventor Wayne Szalinski, accidentally shrank them down to microscopic size. The kids found themselves in a lot of sticky situations. They were attacked by a scorpion twice their size, picked up by a bee, and almost eaten by their own dad in a bowl of cheerios! Supporting each other, Nick and Amy brave the oversized elements until Wayne can get them back to normal size. 


Alice- Alice in Wonderland 


 Alice didn’t know what she was getting herself into when she followed the White Rabbit and fell down the hole, but her adventure is one that we will always remember. Finding herself in a strange place with talking animals and unusual tea parties, our heroine makes new friends and has new experiences. Even though she was just a young girl, Alice bravely fought against the Jabberwocky and saved Underworld from the reign of the Red Queen. 


 Wayne Szalinski- Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves 


 When the adults were accidentally hit by the ray of the shrinking machine, the kids mistakenly thought they were home alone. Wayne and Gordon try to get the kids’ attention by changing the wiring of some speakers to use as a microphone. Throughout the film, Wayne proves himself as a hero by fighting off a large cockroach and riding inside a bubble. In the end, Wayne grows both physically and emotionally when he becomes a better father to his son Adam. 


 Zak- FernGully: The Last Rainforest 


 Although Zak starts out as one of the bad guys, his change of heart gets him a spot on our list of favorite miniature heroes. Through his relationship with Crysta, Zak learns how important the natural world is. In the end, Zak helps save FernGully by stopping Hexxus and the other lumberjacks from taking down all of the trees and destroying the forest forever.
