‘Epic’ Stars Aziz Ansari and Chris O’Dowd Talk Camping with Pitbull and Words Worse Than ‘Moist’


What do you get when you combine the mystical adventure of FernGully and the awe-inspiring tale of Avatar? Something truly Epic. Filled with countless A-list celebrities, Epic is an action-packed comedy that reveals a fantastical world unlike any other.

When a teenage girl 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. Two of those hilarious creatures are a slug and snail voiced by Aziz Ansari and Chris O’Dowd, respectively.

Hollywood.com caught up with the actors to find out how they prepped for their mucus-filled roles and to discuss the universal aversion to the word that makes everyone cringe: moist. To our surprise, Ansari and O’Dowd came up with two additional words that they absolutely detest. Take a look at the video below to find out their secret taboo words and witness a sweet delivery from co-star Amanda Seyfried.

Director Chris Wedge knows that animated movies are primarily enjoyed by the younger generation, but he aimed to do something truly exciting with Epic. Wedge reveals that in addition to adult-level comedy, Epic features adrenaline pumping action scenes that rival most big-budget films. Watch below to learn more Wedge’s creative vision for the film and what he hopes audiences will take away from Epic.

Make sure to catch Epic in theaters everywhere.
